A Family office with a 150 year business heritage.
The predecessors of the current Forman Hardy Family have been a business presence in the East Midlands for over 150 years, spanning business sectors as diverse as: media and communications, brewing and hospitality, and farming.
The boutique finance house out of which TBFS has grown, came into being following the sale of the Nottingham Evening Post Group, in 1995. The driving force behind this was Nicholas Forman Hardy, Non Executive Chairman of T. Bailey Holdings Limited.
His lack of satisfaction with the way his money was managed in the City and most specifically, the inferior service quality provided by City institutions, prompted him to set up his own range of funds and “do things properly”. This ethos is as strong today as it was at inception and permeates the organisation.
