In 1978, Sid Holding started S G Holding & Partners in Little Sutton, Cheshire. Initially called a Brokerage, S G Holding & Partners dealt in insurance, mortgages, and all aspects of financial planning.
Sid Holding is considered a pioneer in financial services and remains highly revered by his previous co-workers and clients. Sid built his business on values of honesty and integrity, developing a very strong professional reputation as a result.
Four years after Sid had started his business, his daughter Karen started at the firm having previously worked for a firm of solicitors. Karen went on to help build the business and strengthen its profile, later qualifying as an Independent Financial Adviser in 1990. Karen later began working part-time in 1994 and had her two children Guy and Max.
In 1993 Sid’s son-in-law Andrew joined the business having recently qualified as an Independent Financial Adviser. Sid provided Andrew with early mentorship and helped Andrew to initially develop as a finance professional.
Sid Holding later retired in 2004, and S G Holding & Partners underwent new ownership. Andrew continued to work at the company as an adviser until the end of 2017.
