Yorkshire base opening for asset management business

Schroders Personal Wealth (SPW) has opened an operational centre in Leeds as it continues to grow its presence across the UK.

The Leeds office is located in City Square, and will also act as the regional hub to serve SPW’s client base in Yorkshire and the North East. SPW’s head office in London will continue to serve its London client base.

SPW has recently established offices and hubs in Cardiff, Bristol, Horsham, Cambridge, Oxford, Edinburgh, Exeter and Manchester. An office in Birmingham is due to open in October.

Each region is led by a regional director, who is supported by a team of personal wealth advisers and a local support team.

Mark Duckworth, chief executive, Schroders Personal Wealth said: “The opening of our Leeds office shows our continued commitment to growing our business across the UK.

“We already have a number of well-established regional offices helping us to achieve our goal of bringing more advice to more people.

“Expanding our regional presence will ensure that our clients can benefit from a more personal and local experience, allowing them to develop strong relationships with our advisers and support teams within the region.”
