AJ Bell is one of the UK’s largest providers of investment platforms and stockbroker services. Their multi-award-winning, low-cost platform has approaching £50 billion of assets under administration (AUA) and the company serves over 172,000 customers. Customer numbers and AUA have grown organically at over 20% compound for the last five years. 

Established in 1995, the Greater Manchester-headquartered company is one of the fastest- growing investment companies in the UK, and its offices in Salford Quays are currently home to over 700 staff. 

The company has continually invested in the region and 2018 will see it relocating approximately 100 stockbroking-related jobs to Manchester from AJ Bell’s office in Tunbridge Wells, just outside of London.

Andy Bell, Chief Executive at AJ Bell said: “As a firm that was formed in Manchester, we have always found the city to be a fantastic regional talent pool, and one that we have been able to tap into regularly as the business has grown. The people who joined us have been central to our success, which is why we have worked so hard to make our HQ at Salford Quays a dynamic, attractive, hi-tech working environment that is focused on their wellbeing. We remain committed to building a centre of excellence here in Manchester that will be the bedrock of our future growth and success.” 

AJ Bell is privately owned by management and a small number of institutional owners. It is likely that a premium listing on the London Stock Exchange is likely to follow in late 2018 or early 2019.
