Blackmore Group relocates Manchester HQ

The Blackmore Group has relocated to new headquarters in Manchester city centre in a move which gives it scope to expand its workforce.

The investment company has moved from Albion Wharf to 2 Mount Street, a 15,000 sq ft listed building which has been refurbished by owner LJ Group.

It is operated by Headspace Group as a co-working, office and events hub.

Blackmore has taken offices on the fourth floor and has room to expand its team. Chief executive Phillip Nunn is based at the new headquarters along with four other directors and ten administrative and support staff.

Nunn and Patrick McCreesh founded Blackmore in 2013 and between them have more than 25 years of financial services experience. They have grown Blackmore into a business with £30m of assets under management.

“Our new premises give us the scope to accommodate further growth for The Blackmore Group and will enable us to develop relationships with other businesses through the collaboration space provided by Headspace, which is great for networking and events, with a push on technology and innovation,” said Nunn.

“This environment fits well with our own forward-thinking ethos and ambitions as we develop our brand and provide impetus to the Northern Powerhouse through our investments.

“These are exciting times for The Blackmore Group as we seek investment opportunities in up-and-coming businesses with a focus on property, renewable energy and financial technology.”
