Brewin Dolphin Pulls The Plug On Its Brighton Office

UK listed wealth management firm has closed its Brighton office as it continues to cut back its regional presence.

It comes hot on the heels of its York office closure in August, while its Chester and Truro branches also closed earlier this year.

Brewin Dolphin's Reigate office is to absorb the firm's Brighton business, the company said.

The consolidation of Brighton will be lead by division head Richard Arris.

The closure of the Brighton hub comes six years after it launched under David Pegler, who joined the firm from UBS Wealth Management. Reigate opened in 1990 and was the first Brewin office to launch outside of London.

"The decision to close our Brighton office was not taken lightly, only after a thorough review to ensure our clients receive the best possible service and I am confident that all our clients will be very well served from the new merged office in Reigate,"  said Stephen Ford, director of Brewin Dolphin and head of investment management.

"We have built up some very important business in the five years since we opened the Brighton office in 2009 and we will continue to grow this highly valued business in and around Brighton and throughout the South East from this new Reigate hub."
