How did we get our name?

We wanted something that was relevant to the investment management industry but also symbolised our vision, strength and commitment to delivering on our objectives for our clients.

The Roc is a mythological bird of prey, akin to a giant eagle that had the capability to sweep away large prey many times its size. It would take vision, strength and commitment to do so. The name “Roc” is also by coincidence an acronym for one of the fundamental objectives in investing: consistently providing an appropriate Return on Capital.

Developing long term trusted partnerships that create value for our clients is Roc Partners number one objective.

Bringing Roc and Partnership together gives us Roc Partners.
