An investment management and stockbroking team in York is celebrating a new era as a period of expansion has led to a move to new city centre offices.
Having been at Bootham for almost ten years, Redmayne Bentley’s York office is now based at Tower House Business Centre on Fishergate.
Head of Office Paul Lumley said: “Having expanded our team in York, we’re very excited at the move to the new, larger offices, with the potential to grow the team further.”
The firm first opened its York office in 1998 above Brown’s department store in Davygate. However, as the team expanded, a more prominent location was chosen for the office to encourage people to drop in while out and about in the city centre. It relocated to 20 Bootham in October 2009.
Alongside Paul, Chris Steward leads on the investment management side of the team. They work alongside stockbrokers Suzanne Oliver and Jamie Cooper and intermediary liaison Chris McKinney, the newest recruit to the office.
In addition to discretionary and advisory investment management services and traditional stockbroking, the firm offers ISAs, SIPPs and probate valuation services. The office works closely with intermediaries including solicitors, accountants and financial advisors.
The move comes after Paul himself has celebrated a milestone, having been with the firm for 25 years after joining its Leeds office in December 1993. He said: “The world of investments is very different now, but there will always be the need for a friendly personal service centred around the needs of the client.
“Whether you are new to investing or have been trading on the stock market for years, whether you want a traditional stockbroking service or you prefer to entrust your portfolios to an experienced investment manager, you are guaranteed a warm welcome.
“We are still seeking to expand our presence in York further and welcome the chance to speak to other investment professionals interested in joining our office.”
