The Leeds team moved to new premises in November 2014. The steady expansion of the branch has resulted in a move to up-graded facilities. No 10 Wellington Place is a magnificent five storey new office building by MEPC in the heart of Leeds’ “New West End”. The new office is part of the extensive re-development of the Wellington Place area, creating a new business district for the city. The office provides a suite of meeting rooms and a modern working environment for staff, which will enhance the overall service they can provide their clients, and give capacity to host events.

Brewin Dolphin established an office in Leeds in 1998 with the acquisition of Wise Speke, which at the outset had a small team operating as stockbrokers. Since then the office has grown year-on-year, both in terms of staff numbers, overall funds under management and the services offered. The business has developed from a stockbroker to wealth manager and now has nearly 50 members of staff; with specialist teams looking after areas such as financial planning, investments for charities, and investing on behalf of intermediaries, working alongside its core investment management expertise.

This move helps to reinforce Brewin Dolphin’s position within the region, which is underlined by their continued support of local events and organisations including corporate sponsorship of Welcome to Yorkshire and a range of local charities.

Michael Craven, head of the Leeds Office said, “We are very excited about our new premises. We look forward to welcoming visitors to our new office. The move marks the start of a new era for us in Leeds and we are confident that the team will continue to grow and build on the successes of recent years.”
