LGT Wealth Management to open new Manchester office and expand Birmingham presence

LGT Wealth Management, one of the leading wealth managers in the UK, today announced plans to open its first office in Manchester and to expand its presence in Birmingham into new premises. The developments reflect ongoing investment in regional growth that will see the firm continue to develop its presence across the UK in 2024.


The Manchester office opens in March 2024 and Mike Stirrup, formerly of Artorius Wealth and UBS, joins as a Wealth Planner, together with Matthew Stevenson, who joins from Evelyn Partners as a Trainee Investment Manager. LGT Wealth Management will continue to strategically build the team over coming months, adding further expertise for clients in the wider Northwest region.

In Birmingham, LGT Wealth Management will be moving into new offices to accommodate the growth of its local presence with the addition of the highly regarded team that joined following the acquisition of abrdn Capital, as well as recent hire, Tom Stone, who joined as Investment Manager following 12 years at Quilter Cheviot.

The acquisition of abrdn Capital in 2023 accelerated LGT Wealth Management’s regional expansion strategy with the addition of high-quality teams in Birmingham and Leeds. The acquisition also complemented planned growth at existing locations in London and Jersey, the Bristol office, established in 2016 and the Edinburgh office, which opened in 2022.

Ben Snee, CEO of LGT Wealth Management, said: “We benefit from forward-thinking private ownership that enables us to invest in the business continuously. The growth of our regional footprint with these two new offices in Manchester and Birmingham further highlights our dedication to bringing exceptional service to our clients and partners around the UK. These cities have always been important to us and we will further develop our strengths in these regions with new talent and fresh perspectives that match our entrepreneurial ethos and dedication to client service.”
