Q&A with Stephen McClymont, investment management director, Tilney Group, Glasgow.
What is your typical client demographic?
There is no such thing – that is the beauty of our business. Our distinct structure allows us to deal with all walks of life from relatively small straightforward investment clients to large complex family office arrangements, pension funds and charities.
What differentiates your region?
As a city, Glasgow has everything there is to offer. It is historically significant in terms of the global contribution it has made towards industry, architecture, education, science and the arts. A quick tour around makes this abundantly clear – the evidence is still there. However, Glasgow has become tremendously cosmopolitan over the years and offers some of the best shopping, nightlife and entertainment in the UK.
What challenges are facing your area?
Unfortunately, despite its many positives, Glasgow is also home to some of the most deprived areas in the UK. As a business, we have a long record of active involvement in, and continue to work closely with, many local charities and other initiatives. We also actively encourage our employees to become personally involved with the local community, either through direct participation or fundraising.
What’s the best thing about living in your region?
Whatever your chosen lifestyle, we can accommodate it. Everything from city-dwelling party animal to solace-seeking outdoors enthusiast is available within a 20 minute commute from the front door of our office.
What is your office motto?
Your personal wealth. Our personal responsibility.
What is a typical regional saying?
‘Gonnae no dae that.’
