Sir James and Lady Lynne MacMillan
Begley Brown was recommended to me about three years ago when life-changing circumstances forced me into having to make financial decisions suddenly and with no preparation. Chris and Mark took the time to meet with me, talk to me, and listen to me, before working out how to best help me. I am genuinely grateful for the support and reassurance they gave me at a difficult time, and the time they took to make sure I understood my options. I felt they genuinely had my family’s best interests are heart, and they have continued this ever since. I trust them to manage things for me day-to-day, and I know they are always available if I need to discuss anything or if anything is worrying me in between our regular review meetings. I would recommend Begley Brown to anyone.

Head of Microscopy Sales, Leica Microsystems
I am delighted to recommend Chris and the team at Begley Brown. As a busy SME business owner and father of 4, their core values resonated with me a lot. The experience of the investment team and clear understanding of my individual needs going forward made it clear that our interests were aligned and that they could make my investments work for me. Also their easy to use technology allows me to keep an eye on my money from my phone which is a huge benefit.
