‘MPS WEALTH MANAGEMENT’ says the new dark-blue livery at the Dennis Estate Agency replacing the red sign of the banking agency Santander which closed in August this year. But what is the new business that now shares the building?
MPS Wealth Management was established in 2013 and is a Partner Practice of St. James’s Place Wealth Management which since 1991 has become one of the UK’s leading wealth management organisations, managing client funds of £49.1 billion.
Although MPS Wealth Management was set up only last year its Director, Mark Sutton, has been a partner with St. James’s Place Wealth Management since 1999 and has worked in the financial industry since 1988. Mark provides face-to-face wealth management advice – including advice on investments, retirement planning, on protecting your wealth and estate – to clients both within the local area, and more widely throughout the whole of the UK.
Mark Sutton said: “As a client, you will receive a personalised face-to-face advisory service from our business, whilst having access to a distinctive investment management approach and the backing and re-assurance of investing with an award-winning FTSE 100 company.”
Estate agent and chartered surveyor John Dennis said that there is no formal partnership or agreement between the two separate businesses other than sharing the building, but there will still be essential benefits:
John Dennis: “Mark Sutton is a Hedon-based independent ‘wealth management’ professional I’ve worked with for over six years. As one of the highly qualified St. James’s Place Partners he’s been dealing with both business and personal issues for Jennifer and me, and the firm – and for many of our clients too – for ages. He is an expert in such areas as mortgages, pensions and inheritance tax planning. He brings an extra dimension to our offering here, at Hedon’s only ‘truly local’ property and financial centre.
“He’s actually now leasing part of our premises, and we will work together in many ways, in effect we will jointly be able to offer a much more broadly based service in the field of property and financial services, with each of us offering our own independent expertise to meet the needs of our clients.”
