Brewin Dolphin Holdings PLC ('the company') announces that Halifax EES Trustees
International Limited ('the trustee'), as trustee of the Brewin Dolphin Holdings
PLC Employee Share Ownership Trust ('the Trust'), has today acquired by
subscription and awarded shares and Brewin Dolphin Holdings PLC has granted
options under the Brewin Dolphin Holdings PLC Senior Employee Matching Share
Purchase Scheme ('the scheme') to employees of companies in the Brewin Dolphin
group of companies, including Simon Still, Sarah Soar and Barry Howard,
Executive Directors in relation to the company. The scheme, which is intended to
encourage share retention by the participating employees, offers participating
employees the opportunity to purchase shares in the company at current market
value and receive a matching option to acquire shares at current market value.

On 14 December 2007 in Jersey, the trustee acquired by subscription and awarded
to relevant participating employees 769,143 of the company's ordinary shares of
1p each ('shares') and on a matching one to one basis the company granted
options to subscribe for 769,143 shares to relevant participating employees.

The shares have been issued to and awarded by the trustee nil paid at a price of
162.5p per share representing the market value of a share at the time of the
issue and award (the average mid-market price of a share at the close of
business on the three business days prior to 14 December 2007 was 162.5p).  The
full purchase price of the shares is payable to the trustee as set out in the
scheme and in any event no later than 14 December 2014.

The options are over new shares of the company and may be exercised, subject to
satisfaction of performance conditions, continued employment by a Brewin Dolphin
company and retention of the related awarded shares from 14 December 2011, and
otherwise as set out in the scheme, at a price of 162.5p per share (no payment
was made on grant) normally at any time between 14 December 2011 and 14
December 2014 but otherwise as set out in the scheme including by reason of a
change of control following a takeover. Save as set out in the scheme, the
options may not be sold, transferred, charged or otherwise disposed of prior to
