Ex-Brewin Dolphin trio launch wealth manager


A new investment boutique has been launched by three ex-Brewin Dolphin directors and the former head of strategy and proposition at Barclays Wealth.

Brighton Capital Management was set up by David Pegler, Ewen Emmerson, and Francis Jarman, who were previously at Brewin Dolphin, and Tim O’Connor from Barclays Wealth.

The new firm offers bespoke investment management and financial planning services to private clients and institutions in the south of England. The team will invest in direct equities, fixed income, investment trusts, funds, exchange traded products and structured notes.

David Pegler, wealth manager – principal says: “The team and I are very proud to be launching Brighton Capital Management to the market. Together we have over 80 years’ experience in wealth management with skills gained at prestigious institutions such as Cazenove, UBS, Brewin, Coutts and Barclays.

“Our main focus at Brighton Capital Management is to offer a boutique choice of family office solutions, investment and fiduciary services. But we will also be able to offer broader services for our clients such as adding advice around the recent pension changes.

“We believe our boutique offering allows us to provide bespoke solutions on a client-by-client basis for typically a better price. Our aim is to offer clients more control, better engagement with their wealth manager and greater independence.”

Raymond James Investment Services will provide the regulatory and compliance functions for the new boutique, as well as the administration platform.
