South Yorkshire Partners


We've always believed that the first step to building wealth is building relationships.

For over 200 years, we’ve been working with our clients to preserve and enhance their wealth. By getting to know you and your family, we’re perfectly placed to adapt as your needs change over time. This is just one of the reasons many of our clients have trusted us for generations.

The art of listening.

Done well, listening is not just a skill; it’s the key to getting to the heart of your current circumstances and future ambitions. It’s how we’re able to build bespoke teams around you to deliver a planning-led approach that will encompass our three core services of wealth planning, investment management and lending. In a continuous cycle of evaluation we listen, plan and deliver so that these services work together to achieve your goals, and we’re able to adapt as your needs change over time. It’s why our clients trust us to manage their wealth so they can focus on living their lives.

We’ve come a long way since then but our ethos remains the same and it’s paying dividends; our staff retention record is excellent, we’ve increased both profit and asset value and we continue to enjoy annual growth every year.
