The RU Group – Over 130 Years of History

Headquartered in Nottingham, UK, The RU Group  is a fee-based firm of independent financial advisers that traces its roots back to 1881, with the formation of the original Scanlan insurance agencies that later became Russell Scanlan.

F S Ulyatt

In 1939, right before the onset of WWII, an RAF officer, by the name of Frank Ulyatt launched F S Ulyatt an advisory firm.

Through the years, the two firms (Russell Scanlan and F S Ulyatt) prospered and expanded their separate operations.
