A LEADING financial planning specialist has expanded by opening a new office in Hexham.

Offering a bespoke service, Sage Wealth Management, a senior representative of St James’s Place Wealth Management, opened its new premises on Priestpopple last month.

The company had previously occupied a different premises on Priestpopple, but moved into the larger space across the road.

The company advises on investment planning; retirement planning; business protection; long-term care; tax and estate planning and family protection.

Senior wealth manager at the Hexham branch Kaye Mullen said: “I have worked in the Hexham area for a number of years now, and have been able to forge a good relationship and client base with the public and local community.

“At Sage Wealth Management, we specialise in the provision of a highly personalised, face to face wealth management service, putting our clients firmly at the centre of everything we do.

“We expanded the Hexham branch in May this year.

“There was only two people working in the office, with one working part time, but we now have three people working full time after Katy O’Donnell joined as an office administrator.

“The larger premises is a lot better suited to the size of our team, and will continue to allow us to provide a positive service to our ever-expanding client base.”
