Brewin Dolphin

Financial Planner - Glasgow

Brewin Dolphin is one of the UK's leading independent providers of discretionary wealth management. We offer award-winning personalised wealth management services that meet the varied needs of over 100,000 account holders, including individuals, charities, and pension funds.


We specialise in helping clients protect and grow their wealth by creating financial plans and investment portfolios that meet personal and professional ambitions and aspirations. Our services range from bespoke, discretionary investment management to retirement planning and tax-efficient investing.


It can be difficult for clients to see beyond the everyday demands of work and family life and take the time to look at their finances in a structured way. Our experienced financial planners help clients to develop a sound strategy for managing their affairs and safeguarding their long-term wealth.


As little as an hour with an expert financial planner can help clients to start building a solid financial plan. After they gain a clear understanding of a client’s circumstances and objectives, they will put together a detailed, personalised plan. The financial planning service spans a number of areas including: retirement/pension planning, protection (a range of financial products, such as life assurance, income protection and critical illness cover), guidance on estate planning, and tax-efficient ways of investing. Our many decades of experience mean we can help clients achieve their goals in both favourable and more challenging economic climates.
