We started with just 3 members in our team, with the ambition of making a name for ourselves in the North East as the best place to go for financial advice.

After a successful few years and growing our client numbers, we decided it was time to grow our team  and give Wealth of Advice a new look.

Going strong into 2024, we now have 18 people in our team, and over 600 happy clients! We aren't going anywhere, and with an average age of 35, you know we're here to help you for the long-term.
