Growing our financial planning and advice business

Following our announcement in July 2019, 1825, our financial planning and advice business, has completed its acquisition of the wealth advisory business of Grant Thornton UK LLP. It’s the largest acquisition to date for 1825, increasing its assets under advice by 40%.

The acquisition represents a significant step forward in growing 1825’s presence across the UK. It means that 1825 is welcoming around 100 new colleagues, and adding two client support centres in Belfast and Sheffield that offer a range of specialisms and expertise.

Grant Thornton’s wealth advisory business specialises in all aspects of wealth management, family, trust and business advice.

Following the completion, 1825 CEO Julie Scott commented:

“We’re delighted to welcome the wealth advisory business to the team and we’re looking forward to continuing to support wealth advisory clients as part of 1825. Demand for financial planning and advice continues and we want to make it easier for people to access high quality advice when they need it most.”
