Walker Crips, the national Investment and Wealth Management group, has opened its latest office in Brickfield House, Epping, from where it will offer a range of advice and investment services, covering execution, advisory and discretionary stockbroking.
Walker Crips is one of the oldest independent stockbrokers in London with its history dating back to 1914 and currently manages nearly £4bn of assets. This new office will be the thirteenth Walker Crips site in the UK, joining locations including London, Birmingham, Bristol and York. It will be run by investment directors Andrew Powell and Billy Newton, who are both local residents. Each has over 15 years’ experience in the broking industry, having left Barclays’ Wealth Management in 2014 to partner with Walker Crips.
Rodney FitzGerald, chief executive, Walker Crips, says: ‘With many banks withdrawing investment advisory services, our new Epping office addresses a gap in the market for local residents. As we continue to grow our client base, Andrew’s and Billy’s extensive industry experience ensures Essex residents will have access to the high quality, tailored advice which Walker Crips is known for.’
Andrew Powell, investment director, Walker Crips adds: ‘I have lived in Essex all my life and believe being at the heart of our client base will allow us to build better relationships with them. We are open for business and look forward to welcoming prospective clients to our office in order to discuss their investment objectives.’
