A better structure and more
disciplined approach to investing
Brett Investment was established in 2000 by Jeremy Brett and has since grown to be the leading wealth management and financial planning firm in the Scottish Borders.
Since 2004, Brett Investment has worked with clients on a fee basis, as this is the only way to offer truly objective financial advice. Experience has shown that once the concept of fees has been properly explained to clients, they much prefer working this way (click on our BettrValue page for more information).
In 2008 and again in 2011, Brett Investment was one of only five firms to be short-listed for the New Model Adviser of the Year Award (Scotland and Northern Ireland).
In 2008, Brett Investment – along with a handful of other like-minded independent financial advisers – set up the Trusted Adviser Group (TAG), to maintain better standards of business integrity and professional accountability.
Jeremy started his career in financial services back in 1992 and having experienced both the good and the bad of the industry, set up his own business in 2000.
He was one of the first Independent Financial Advisors (IFAs) in Scotland to pioneer a move to a fee basis and became a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNERCM professional in 2007.
