Alexander Hoare

Spear’s review

‘As senior partner, I am steward of the firm’s values and heritage,’ says Alexander Hoare. These values continue to inform the character of the UK’s oldest family-owned bank (founded in 1672). For Hoare, who joined C. Hoare & Co. in 1987, profit and philanthropy are easy bedfellows. ‘We aim to be good bankers and good citizens,’ he says. A pioneer in the field of social and impact investing, Hoare is a founding partner of Snowball LLP, a diversified, multi-asset investment vehicle focused on positive outcomes for ‘people and planet’.

‘It has been my life’s work’, he says, ‘to demonstrate that you don’t have to descend to the unacceptable face of capitalism to earn an honest crust.’
