James Appleby

How can I help you?

I lead the financial advice and investment management teams at Tees, and have worked in financial services for over 32 years. As well as being a trusted adviser to my clients, the majority of my career has also been spent leading teams specialising in financial advice, wealth management and private banking.  

People are at the heart of everything we do – and we are passionate about helping people achieve their goals. Our primary aim is to help our clients to enhance, grow and protect their wealth.

All of our advisers work in partnership with clients for the long-term, and we have advised many of our clients over the course of years. Our expertise and experience means we can look ahead and help our clients achieve the best possible results in their situation.
