A long history of looking forward

Brewin Dolphin manages your money. We are one of the UK’s largest private client investment managers, with a network of 41 offices and over £25 billion under management.  In 2012 we’re celebrating 250 years in business and have chosen to pay homage to our rich heritage and the values that have made us stand out from our peers since the early days of the stock exchange.

Our deep-rooted North East history can be traced back to the founding of Wise Speke in 1903 and today, the Newcastle office is one of the largest in the Brewin Dolphin group. The 350-strong workforce based at the city centre’s prestigious Time Central Office, have developed an integrated service which combines investment management and financial planning expertise. We work closely with our clients, providing fresh investment ideas, with a no-nonsense approach, to help protect and grow their wealth. Our service is shaped by our knowledge of industry trends locally and globally, and from our base in Newcastle, we have been tailoring successful solutions for many thousands of clients, including charities, pension funds, families and businesses for generations.

Brewin Dolphin has a strong affinity with NewcastleGateshead. There are many similarities between our vision and values and those of the people and places around us. Being based here for over a century has undoubtedly played a major part in our success and we like to play an active part in the life of the community in the North East.

To that end, Brewin has stepped up its commitment to the region, forging close links with business, culture and sport. We’re very proud of our regional heritage and this is reflected in our sponsorship of the Theatre Royal, Durham County Cricket Club, Team Northumbria Rugby, The Entrepreneurs Forum, North East Business Executive of the Year Awards and the Literary and Philosophical Society.

And we don’t just stop at providing investment advice. Our people are proud to be immersed in the local community and are encouraged to play an active part in the daily life of NewcastleGateshead. Whether it’s for business or pleasure, they get involved in a range of activities. From helping local charities and being involved with cultural projects, being an informed voice of the business community or simply playing in and supporting sport, we do it all!

Our story is one of exceptional people doing the best for their clients in extraordinary times. Over 250 years we’ve witnessed the industrial revolution, two world wars, the rise of the internet and a global financial sector that operates round the clock at break-neck speed. From the days of handwritten copperplate letters through to launching our first iPad app in 2011, it’s our long history of looking forward that has helped us to stand the test of time and remain an investment management market leader.

Charles May, Head of Office at Brewin Dolphin
