About our roles and the work Charles Stanley does…

Simon Scott-White, Chartered FCSI  – Branch Manager


What are your areas of expertise? (How do you support your clients)

I am an investment manager as well as branch manager. I aim to grow the funds under management for the office to help us be the leading wealth managers in the UK in the next few years.

What do you enjoy about your work?

Autonomy – being able to develop a business as if it is our own. If I went to one of our competitors, I wouldn’t get that – I love the entrepreneurial spirit and approach…You get a much better outcome if staff are driven by internal goals rather than those set by head office. I am a big believer in bottom-up ideas rather than top down. We have parameters from head office but an awful lot of flexibility. We are investment managers and not traditional stockbrokers – we have a lot more of a holistic view of looking after clients. We work with solicitors, accountants and IFAs hand in hand to ensure our clients have a team of experts around them.
