All seven of AAB’s business units are now represented at its Edinburgh office, allowing the firm to offer its full range of and wealth management services from the capital’s office.

Douglas Martin, Head of Growth Strategy at AAB said: “We took the decision to enter the Edinburgh market to allow us to continue to strengthen relationships in the central belt and one year in, we are already seeing fantastic results. Meeting our first-year revenue target is a great achievement and with a number of recent significant client wins we are well on our way to delivering our year two revenue target of £3 million.

AAB celebrated the firm’s first year in Edinburgh on Thursday, 13th June at the Sheraton Grand Hotel & Spa with an evening of canapés and drinks for over 150 clients and contacts.
