As the holiday season rolls around the corner, we took the time to reflect on what has been a fantastic year for our clients. Our veteran portfolio managers have worked tirelessly to bring financial success across a wide variety of alternative assets ranging from scotch whisky casks, gold coins and luxury timepieces. 

As part of Hackstons commitment to the wellbeing and mental health of our staff, we will be closing our offices from the 15th December to 4th January. This is to ensure that our staff have enough time to spend with their family and friends, so that when we reopen we can continue to deliver the exceptional service that our clients expect from Hackstons. 

If you have any questions over the period, please email us at, but please note that replies might be a bit slow. 

Mental health is an important issue and over the holidays it is important to help out those in need, here are the links to some fantastic charities our staff support such as Mind and Shelter who are helping to tackle these issues.
