Edward Jewson | PMCL Consulting

Edward Jewson
Founder & CEO

Edward has been at the forefront of charity investment consultancy for most of the past three decades, providing professional advice to a wide range of charities in the days when most relied on the skills of their trustees and the engagement of external consultants was not common. 

He set up a successful investment consultancy business, Jewson Associates, in the 1990’s advising charities, endowments and foundations on their investment management arrangements. He then sold the business to Stanhope Capital LLP in 2011 and became a partner of Stanhope Capital LLP and Head of Stanhope Jewson. 

Edward has extensive experience working with trustee boards and investment committees and helping them reach the highest common denominator as a group and ensure that all participants feel comfortable and contribute to the discussion. 

Edward is also an experienced fee negotiator helping clients to achieve better value.
