One of Nottingham’s leading wealth management firms, Carter Legrand Wealth Strategies, has taken the lease of 1 Hope Drive in The Park area of the city, giving the firm an impressive self-contained office at the foot of Nottingham Castle.
The firm, which was previously based on Castle Boulevard, is the only wealth management firm based in The Park and the move is to accommodate team growth and to be closer to its private and corporate clients in the area and neighbouring city centre.
Local law firm Fraser Brown Solicitors helped the company secure the lease for the two-storey premises located at the intersection of Peveril Drive and Hope Drive within The Park Estate.
Carter Legrand Wealth Strategies, which has offices in Nottingham and London, provides bespoke, specialist and personable financial advice to professionals, business owners, entrepreneurs and private clients.
Bradley Legrand, director of Cater Legrand Wealth Strategies, said: “We have been looking for a larger office, with a more ‘boutique’ feel, closer to the city for some time now and we particularly wanted to be within The Park Estate so this property is the perfect fit for us.
“It’s an exciting time for our company, we have a strong and expanding client base who value our specialist services and having our own front door is fantastic, we have already had a positive response from clients who like the convenient yet discreet location.
“Nottingham is a great place to be in business and myself and the rest of the team look forward to further growth as part of our expansion strategy.”
Bradley, who also works out of the firms London office, helps clients on a face to face basis across the Midlands and South East to formulate strong and effective financial planning strategies.
Liam Wilkinson, a solicitor in the commercial property department at Fraser Brown, worked with Bradley to secure the lease for the premises, he said: “Carter Legrand is a well-recognised business in the industry and its presence in The Park is a great addition to the area.
“Bradley and his team have an excellent reputation, which will no doubt become even more widely recognised in the city thanks to this move. I wish the team all the best in the new office and look forward to working with them again.”
The self-contained period office, which is around 850 sq ft, has the benefits of tranquil surroundings whilst being only a few minutes’ walk from the city centre.
FHP Property Consultants brokered the lease of the property on behalf of the landlord. Mark Tomlinson, associate director, said: “Our clients are delighted to have secured such a good quality tenant for their building, which was brought to the market at an ideal time for Carter Legrand Wealth Strategies to service their expansion plans. The property was originally designed by renowned Nottingham Architect TC Hine in the mid-1800s and the prestige offered by the building coupled with the Park Estate location seems befitting of Carter Legrand Wealth Strategies business and reputation.”
