Media Release: Brown Shipley sponsors PSYBT

PRIVATE bank, Brown Shipley, is pleased to announce a partnership agreement with the Prince’s Scottish Youth Business Trust (PSYBT).

Over the next three years, Brown Shipley will donate £15,000 to support the PSYBT in providing essential financial and professional support for young entrepreneurs aged between 18 and 25 in Scotland.

At an event held to celebrate Brown Shipley’s Edinburgh office move to 2 Multrees Walk, adjacent to the city’s traditional financial centre in St Andrew Square, Robert Kitchen, Brown Shipley’s executive director, presented a cheque to Geoff Leask, PSYBT director.

Robert said: “Brown Shipley admires the entrepreneurial spirit the PSYBT fosters by investing in Scotland’s youth, as we have a long history of advising clients with established businesses. So we are delighted with our involvement in this initiative, which reflects our commitment to Scotland.”

Geoff said: “PSYBT is thrilled to benefit from this three-year partnership with Brown Shipley. We work with young people from all over Scotland, with a particular concern for the disadvantaged. Current high levels of youth unemployment make our work more vital than ever as we seek to help young people start up in business. These entrepreneurs provide jobs and economic prosperity that are so crucial to leading the way in growing our economy.”

The event on the evening of Thursday 15th March was attended by more than 70 of Brown Shipley’s clients, who were treated to an acoustic set by up-and-coming band Bwani Junction.
