About 1825

Why we exist

Our purpose is to help every one of our clients plan for their future, by providing quality financial planning and advice.

  • About us

Supporting clients across the UK

We want to help more people access advice and benefit from having a plan in place for them and the people they care about. Everyone in 1825 is committed to giving a high quality service to help you with your decisions – whether it’s taking straightforward action or advising on complex situations. Leading firms are joining us so we can provide planning and advice across the UK, and we're developing our telephone service so we can help you wherever you need us.

Each of the firms that come together to form 1825 are well respected in the industry, with talented professionals and a strong culture built around doing the right thing or the best thing for their clients.

Pearson Jones was the founding partner of 1825 – launching our brand in 2015. Over a 40 year period, they grew to have offices in Leeds, Sheffield, Bishop Auckland and Reading and achieved Chartered status from the CII.

Our London hub was established by the acquisition of Baigrie Davies in 2016. As a CISI accredited firm they have been well established in providing a high quality holistic financial planning service.

Our heritage

The firms we acquire bring decades of experience in financial planning and advice, and are supported by specialists in investment, tax, pensions and more. We have the strength and stability of the Standard Life group behind us – a leading long-term savings and investment business founded in 1825, with £357.1bn of assets under administration (as at 31 December 2016).

Through having the backing of a FTSE 100 company, the firms that become part of 1825 benefit from the scale and support of a large organisation, as well as specialist knowledge and expertise.
