New advisory service named
Standard Life evokes heritage in 1825 business
After aquiring Pearson Jones in February the company announced it would build a wholly-owned financial planning business.
This is in response to the “fundamental changes” that it says are driving unprecedented demand for advice from customers.
Steve Murray (pictured), 1825 chief executive, said: “It’s never been more complex for people to save, retire and plan for the future. At the same time, there is a capacity crunch in the UK advice market, with many people unable to access the advice they want.”
The business has offices in Edinburgh, Leeds, Sheffield, Bishop Auckland and Reading.
