Hargreave Hale sees AUM more than double to GBP5bn in two years


Hargreave Hale assets under management (AuM) have now exceeded GBP5 billion, following significant recent growth across the UK. The investment manager’s AuM stood at GBP1 billion in 2010, and has more than doubled from GBP2.2 billion in 2013. The firm also has in excess of GBP800 million in assets under administration.


Hargreave Hale’s success has been driven by impressive organic inflows and a strategic regional expansion. It opened new offices in Norwich and Nottingham earlier this year, following the successful establishment of a York branch in July 2014. Since launch, the York office has attracted more than 400 new clients.


The firm’s success has led it to expand many of its regional hubs, moving to a new office in Worcester in January 2015, where it has subsequently hired four new investment managers and seen assets grow by GBP70m to GBP200m. This is expected to increase further in the coming months.


Hargreave Hale is also investing in custom-built new premises for its Blackpool operations, currently scheduled for completion in Spring 2016. The team will be recruiting a number of front and back office staff as part of the relocation to match the demand Hargreave Hale is seeing in the North West.


Stuart Brookes (pictured), joint managing director at Hargreave Hale, says: “Surpassing GBP5bn in assets under management is a significant milestone for us, and one that we are pleased to reach while maintaining our client-first ethos.


“Over the last two to three years we have seen some significant shifts in the industry, most notably with competitors scaling back the bespoke services they offer to their clients.


“We are fully committed to delivering tailored financial solutions, regardless of how much money someone has, and it is this committed approach that has driven like-minded wealth managers to join us, and fuelled the growth of our business.”
