Charles Stanley

About Us

Charles Stanley & Co. Limited is one of the oldest firms on the London Stock Exchange. Its origins lie in a banking partnership established in Sheffield in January 1792.

The bank prospered, as did the Stock Exchange investment business. By the 1830s this had grown to the point where a Director was needed in London to handle it, so Charles Stanley came southwards to London. As the business grew it became recognised as a separate operation and in 1852 the name Charles Stanley first appeared as an independent member firm of the London Stock Exchange.

Today, Charles Stanley is one of the UK’s leading wealth management firms. We provide a range of financial planning and investment management services to national charities, trusts, financial advisers and professional institutes, but our principal business remains as it was over 200 years ago, the provision of a high-quality, personal service to our private clients.
