Maria Cobbe


I joined Stanhope Capital in 2019 and focus on advising institutional non-profits and Middle Eastern family investors. I also chair Stanhope’s Footprint Committee ensuring the company meets its internal and external corporate responsibility and sustainability goals.

I grew up in Germany and moved to the U.K. to study before starting my career at Cambridge Associates, eventually leading the analyst team and specialising in asset allocation reviews, portfolio analysis and manager selection. Following an extended career break, I worked at Wellington Management International with a focus on German clients.

I graduated in 2004 with a Master in History of Art from The Courtauld Institute of Art in London, am a member of the Chartered Institute for Securities and Investment (CISI) and have three children, one of whom is neurodiverse.
