London-based Brown Shipley will retain its name but add ‘a Quintet Private Bank’ to its UK brand.
Brown Shipley has growing Financial Planning and wealth management arms and in recent years has acquired a number of Financial Planning and wealth management firms, including East Anglian firm NW Brown which has 74 employees. Brown Shipley employs a number of Chartered Financial Planners.
KBL European Private Bankers was founded in Luxembourg in 1949 and operates in 50 cities across Europe.
The pan-European private banking group as a whole has been renamed “Quintet Private Bank.” KBL Luxembourg, the private bank in the Grand Duchy, has been rebranded as “Quintet Luxembourg” and KBL España as “Quintet España.”
The group’s long-established affiliates in other markets will continue to operate under their current brand names – while each will also be identified as “a Quintet private bank.” These brands include Brown Shipley (UK), InsingerGilissen (Netherlands), Merck Finck (Germany) and Puilaetco (Belgium and Luxembourg).
Jakob Stott, chief executive of wealth management at Quintet, said: “Like a musical ensemble, we bring together different viewpoints and diverse perspectives so we can meet our clients’ needs and earn their trust by always doing the right thing for them.
Brown Shipley has offices in London, Manchester, Birmingham, Cambridge, Leeds, Edinburgh, Norwich and Nottingham and a history dating back to 1810.
