Pilling & Co is proud to have offered skilled Stockbroking and Portfolio Management Services for over a century. Our head office is named after our founder, Henry Pilling, who launched the firm in 1893.
We offer a professional and friendly service to clients from all over the EU and have also forged excellent working relationships with many Solicitors, Accountants and IFA’s.
We pioneered Personal Equity Plans (PEPs) and their replacement Individual Savings Accounts (ISAs), and defined the development of this special market nationally. Our expertise in ISAs also covers “Self-Invested” Personal Pensions (SIPPs) of which many clients have already taken full advantage. In recent years we have added Child Trust Funds (CTFs) to the menu and more recently Junior Individual Savings Accounts (JISAs) giving you the investment vehicles you need to look after all the family.
We also specialise in Investment Management and Discretionary Management services and our Investment Management team have collectively over 100 years of portfolio management experience. They have experienced a diversity of economic and monetary conditions from the Dot-com bubble of 2000 and the 2008 financial crisis, from monetary tightening and credit restricting periods to the current period of loose monetary policy and quantitative easing.
The Pilling Ideal Portfolios (PIPs) were introduced in 2001 with the aim of offering clients a bespoke portfolio made up of unit trust, OEICs and investment trusts at a lower rate than our Investment and Discretionary services.
Our aim is to help you achieve your investment goals with the minimum of fuss. This is why we offer an unrivalled telephone service where calls to Pilling & Co go directly to experienced staff.
The main number 0161 832 6581 is answered by qualified stockbrokers who have immediate access to the markets and can normally deal for you instantly. We also have a direct line 0161 819 4850 to our Administration Department for enquiries relating to your accounts and a direct line 0161 819 4808 to our Settlement Department for stock enquiries to save you annoying call transfers.
This makes your phone call shorter and means your needs are dealt with more efficiently. We find this the best way of giving you an efficient service, particularly in busy periods when rapid market movements mean a surge of calls. In volatile market conditions the ability to trade instantly is critical, which gives Pilling clients a major advantage. We pride ourselves on our ability to answer promptly, even in very busy periods.
