Bath Office

Some intro text here only showing in homepage mode.

The Charles Stanley Bath office was established in 1994 and is made up of five experienced Investment Managers assisted by an Investment Advisor and three members of support staff. This small team of professionals works to give clients a personal and tailored service from a dedicated Investment Manager – while the cooperative atmosphere ensures that clients receive continuity of service no matter when they call or visit.

The convenient location of our office in Queen Square means that we are always available to clients passing by who wish to pop in and discuss the latest investment trends. We currently look after private clients, financial advisers, trustees of charities, solicitors, accountants, and corporate clients. We offer a traditional investment management service as well as managing investment portfolios including ISAs, SIPPs and other pensions.

We look forward to welcoming you to the Charles Stanley Bath office.
