Trustees

The Trustees are appointed from the world of business and other walks of life. Each brings a breadth and depth of experience.

As the ultimate owners of the privately owned Grosvenor Estate they establish their policies and also offer support and give constructive challenge throughout the organisation, always acting in a non-executive capacity.

Decision making is devolved from the Trustees of the Grosvenor Estate to the Boards of Grosvenor Group and Wheatsheaf Group and they in turn delegate to the individual operating companies within their businesses. The Family Investment Office supports members of the family and the Trustees in the management of the rural and other associated assets.
