Some intro text here only showing in homepage mode.

The Charles Stanley Cambridge office, the first outside of London, was established in June 1981. We now have a team of six highly experienced Investment Managers and five members of support staff.

Specialising in discretionary and advisory bespoke portfolio management and selective probate services, we have a range of services for individuals, charities, universities, colleges and trusts. We provide investment advice and management across the full range of assets available – from direct equities and gilts to collectives and ETFs backed by our large research team based in London.  We work closely with our colleagues in our London office to offer Inheritance Tax portfolios and financial  planning via Cambridge. For those who prefer to choose their own investments we also offer an Execution-only service via our award winning online provider Charles Stanley Direct.
