we're picky about who we partner with

Gatekeepers to carefully selected, world class financial solutions

Not all institutions are equal. Over the years we have built trusted relationships through ups and downs, booms, and recessions, with key trusted institutions which we call our Strategic Partners. As Gatekeepers, through Stein, our client’s enjoy access to this carefully selected group of the best and most respected global financial institutions, not usually available to everyone.

With access to an award-winning research team, who undertake research across markets, asset classes and individual companies. They develop unconstrained views and insights

“Today’s Brewin Dolphin can trace its story back to 1762. John Dawes is among a group of stockbrokers at Jonathan’s Coffee House to buy and sell shares. It is the beginnings of the London Stock Exchange. His business will eventually become Brewin Dolphin. The business has witnessed financial crises in the past, from stock market bubbles to global pandemics. That experience has created a culture that takes a long-term perspective. In today’s times of uncertainty that is as relevant as ever”.
