GHP Group was founded in 2012 following Mark Garber leading a management buy out of the Russian office of Fleming Family & Partners (FF&P), an international financial group. GHP Group is focused on emerging markets, as well as those of Europe and the UK. The main shareholders of GHP Group are Mark Garber (Senior Partner and Chairman of the Board).

Cooperation between Mark Garber (formerly Chairman of the Board at Robert Fleming & Co) and the Fleming family dates back to 1995 when Mark in cooperation with Hans-Joerg Rudloff (former CEO of Credit Suisse and Chairman of the Executive Committee at Barclays Capital since 1998) established United Capital Bank (UCB). In 1998, UCB was bought out by global investment house Robert Fleming & Co, then headed by its Chairman, Roderick D. Fleming. That was the starting point for the close cooperation which lasted 14 years. This period was marked by several important events including the sale of the investment banking division of Robert Fleming & Co to Chase Manhattan for $7.7 bn and the establishment of a new financial group Fleming Family & Partners (FF&P) by Roderick D. Fleming and Mark Garber in 2000.

Since 2000, Fleming Family & Partners has acted as an adviser to some of Russia’s leading companies including GMK Norilsk Nickel (developing the structure of its gold-mining business which later materialized in the establishment of Polyus Gold), Rosneft, Gazprombank and SUAL.

In 2003, FF&P began investing directly in the Russian economy with the establishment of gold extraction company Highland Gold Mining and its subsequent listing on the London Stock Exchange and the expansion of iron ore mining company Aricom Plc by taking advantage of being its majority shareholder at that time.

In 2008, FF&P incorporated asset management company Fleming Family & Partners in Russia (assets under management exceeded about $700 mn in 2012).

In 2012, Mark Garber took a decision to buy out the Russian division from FF&P.

In November 2012 GHP Group Wealth Management has won the SPEAR's RussiaASSET MANAGEMENT FIRM of the Year 2012 Award.
