The value of investments and any income from them can fall and you may get back less than you invested.


Our people

The way we treat our own people is both a reflection of the role we want to play in society, and an indicator of the resilience and sustainability of our business.

Culture and values

We have clearly defined values which describe our culture. These values are Genuine, Expert and Ambitious. These are real values, authentic to Brewin Dolphin. They were developed by our people themselves, and they capture the character of the organisation.  They define how we interact with each other and with our clients, and the way we work to fulfil our vision of being the leading wealth manager in the UK. 

Development, engagement and leadership

We love to see our people flourish in their careers here at Brewin Dolphin, and see that as key to our success as a business. We support their development through a number of initatives and programmes, from offering apprenticeships with the Financial Planning Academy and Business Support teams in Newcastle, to developing future leaders through our MBA Programme and Executive Leadership Programme.

We also want our people to be happy, healthy and engaged with their work here, because we believe that means they will be at their best for our clients. We care for our employees' wellbeing and run employee engagement surveys, reporting the results in our annual report. Our scores are above industry benchmarks, and we act upon the findings so that we can continue to improve as an organisation.

Diversity and Inclusion

We believe that an inclusive culture enables everyone to thrive. Our aim is that all employees feel valued, listened to and are able to contribute to their team and Brewin Dolphin’s goals. As a market leader in our industry we want to attract and retain the best talent because we recognise the importance of diverse and creative thinking to our future success. 

Our Chairman and CEO are members of the 30% Club and we have signed the Women in Finance Charter. These initiatives keep our focus on increasing gender diversity at senior management and leadership levels. More broadly, our Diversity and Inclusion Committee have a programme of work ensuring that we are focussed on all aspects of diversity. How we recruit, develop and retain talented people regardless of their background is at the heart of our strategic agenda.

Gender pay gap Report

Brewin Dolphin welcomes this reporting requirement and in particular hopes it will shine a light on
the difficult issue of the gender imbalance in more senior roles within the financial services industry.
