As a financial firm, Crewe was established in 2011. Its namesake, culture, and heritage date back to 1840 with Crewe Railway Works, a railway engineering facility that once stretched for over two miles across the English town of Crewe. The facility transformed the town from a rural English hamlet into one of the most important railway manufacturing hubs in the world. At its peak, it provided employment for over 20,000 craftsmen who were skilled in their trade and proud of their work. The locomotives they created set world records and became renowned across the globe for their elegance and power, feeding Britain’s economic arteries. More importantly, these craftsmen created trains that allowed working people to travel across the country, visiting the seaside for the first time, venturing beyond the familiarity of their hometowns, and exploring in ways they had never imagined possible. These trains sent soldiers to war and allowed children to escape bomb-ravaged cities.
Thousands of hands went into creating the locomotives that made Crewe famous. These hands were skilled–therein lay the forger, the boiler maker, the fitter, the machinist, the carpenter, and the apprentice. Crewe’s success was rooted in the company’s specialization, attention to detail, and commitment to high-quality workmanship at every turn.
In 1946, after over one hundred years of fine craftsmanship, the city of Crewe upheld its reputation by manufacturing some of the world’s most iconic hand-crafted automobiles, including Rolls Royce and Bentley. This tradition of craftsmanship has been passed down from grandparent to parent to child, with multiple generations of a family collaborating in the works. Crewe continues to stand for teamwork, service, craftsmanship, sweat, determination, skill, community, family, and pride.
We have taken the city of Crewe, with its impeccable reputation for hard work, integrity, and attention to detail as inspiration to strive for providing the financial industry’s finest services, including a culture of teamwork, a standard of professionalism, a craftsman’s dedication to quality, and a commitment to customer service.
Crewe’s professionals are committed to making a lasting positive impact in the communities where they work and live.
