Our Story

The Story of The Private Office

TPO was established in 2008 in response to the increasingly impersonal nature of “mass market” advice.

A key objective of our business is to have significant positive impact. 25% of our future value will be gifted to environmental charities Restore Our Planet. All employees are shareholders in the company, which motivates our people to help make the planet a better place, by ensuring the advice we offer our customers is excellent.
