Background to Brooklands
Prior to launching Brooklands, the partners worked together as the General Counsel and Head of Operations at Cube Capital (US$1.5 billion asset manager covering Fund of Funds, Hedge Funds, Private Equity and Real Estate).
In replicating the infrastructure of an institutional standard asset manager and providing this to emerging asset managers, Brooklands provides the opportunity to build a robust framework to effectively manage risk and attract investors.
Our name is inspired by the world's first purpose-built motor racing circuit as well as one of Britain's first airfields, which also became Britain's largest aircraft manufacturing centre by 1918. Following the Motor Car Act 1903, Britain was subject to a blanket 20 mph (32 km/h) speed limit on public roads: at a time when nearly 50% of the world's new cars were produced in France, there was concern that Britain's infant auto-industry would be hampered by the inability to undertake sustained high-speed testing. Brooklands closed to motor racing during World War I, was requisitioned by the War Office and continued its pre-war role as a flying training centre although it was now under military control.
Brooklands soon became a major location for the construction, testing and supply of military aeroplanes.
