We are Meridiem

Inspired by the concept of time, our new name reflects our focus on protecting and growing clients’ wealth over the longer term

Veritas Investment Partners announced today, 28 February 2024, that it will be changing its name to Meridiem Investment Management to provide greater clarity to represent its distinct position in the market. The firm’s investment approach, its team and commitment to being stewards for its clients’ capital remain unchanged.

Inspired by the concept of time, the new name reflects its focus on protecting and growing clients’ wealth over the longer term – delivering returns ahead of inflation, building lasting relationships and ensuring the quality of stewardship across the companies in which it invests in, all take time.

Caroline Stokell, CEO of Veritas Investment Partners, commented:
‘Meridiem Investment Management is a powerful name that reflects the very essence of what lies at the heart of our firm. Our dedication to do the right thing by our clients, rather than follow the industry norm, has shaped who we are and what we do.’

Ross Ciesla, CIO of Veritas Investment Partners, said:
‘Time is a critical aspect of our investment philosophy. We strongly believe that it takes time and patience to deliver returns ahead of inflation, build lasting relationships and ensure quality of stewardship across the companies in which we invest. Meridiem as a name perfectly captures this approach.’

Clients and intermediaries have been notified of the company name change. Towards the end of March, the new name will begin to appear in its literature and on the website over the next 12 months.
