Ravenscroft has offices in Guernsey, Jersey, the Isle of Man and the UK and our private and institutional clients are based across the world.
Ravenscroft's headquarters is in Guernsey where the company was founded. Our Jersey office opened in 2008 and then in 2015, we purchased a 75% share of an independent stockbroking firm based in Peterborough. In 2020, we made two further acquisitions with the teams in Bishop's Stortford and the Isle of Man joining the group and in April 2022 we acquired the CI operation of MitonOptimal Group and were joined by a team of six in the Guernsey office.
