Matthew Brown

I advise private clients on key aspects of investment, financial and retirement planning. I focus my client engagements on truly understanding on what matters to you, and ultimately, ensuring that my advice can enable you to live a more financially fulfilling life.

I care strongly about the relationships that I develop, and that they are driven by trust, empathy, and doing the right thing.

Originally from Newcastle upon Tyne, I joined The Private Office as a graduate trainee in October 2018. Prior to that I read Economics at The University of Leeds, graduating with a first-class degree in the summer of that same year.

What drives me?

I really love what I do, because I have the opportunity to help people live more financial fulfilling lives. I’m always trying to develop and broaden my knowledge of advice to ensure that I’m consistently delivering the most suitable advice for my clients.

Outside of work you’ll find me either attempting to hit a golf ball into a hole, tearing my hair out supporting Newcastle United, or simply spending time with friends and family over good food and drink.
