Our Philosophy

Our business philosophy is based around a desire to develop long-standing and highly trusted relationships with our clients and to become their first point of contact for all of their financial related business matters.

We are a modern, progressive, yet long established practice, whose origins can be traced back to the late 19th Century. Our head office is based in Durham City and we have a further office in Newcastle-upon-Tyne.

Our team of 25 incorporates a range of experience and qualifications and we all attach great importance to a friendly approach, building on personal relationships.
