Meet Abacus in London


The Abacus team looks forward to meeting you...

London is an important hub for private wealth advisers and the March PCD networking dinner is an ideal opportunity for meeting many of them. 

As Abacus continues to build its network and explore how it helps others operating in the wealth management sector, we are delighted it has chosen to be a Silver sponsor for the event. 

In the past 12 months Abacus has invested in its team to make the business even stronger, has rebranded and launched a new website and this year celebrates the 40th anniversary of the Abacus Trust Company.

Abacus feels now is the right time to share to a wider audience the advantages of working with them, so please meet some of the team who will be in London in March to talk about their work.
