TODAY Post Business is launching a new feature and taking you to the desks of some of the region’s key commercial figures.
Step Into My Office kicks off today with Everton fan and branch manager at Charles Stanley stockbrokers, Derek Gawne.
Derek was one of the key figures in persuading the board at Charles Stanley to open up a Liverpool office back in 2010, and told the Post the trading floor in the Chapel Street branch is here to stay.
He said: “We’re here as part of a long term strategy, and our aim is to be profitable and stay here for years to come.”
The firm opened up in Merseyside the midst of a recession, but a forward-looking philosophy and knowledge of the local investment market will pay dividends, Derek insists: “Stock markets are predictors of the future, not reactors to the past.
“Liverpool is the second-largest wealth management area in the UK outside London, and Charles Stanley are a long term presence here.”
