Charles Stanley is an UK-based investment management company which focuses on serving the private investors. It also acts for many national charities, trusts, professional institutes and major financial institutions.

Its origins lie in a banking partnership established in Sheffield in January 1792. The bank prospered, and so did its Stock Exchange investment business.

By the 1830s this had grown to the point where a Director was needed in London to handle it, so Charles Stanley came southwards.
