Share Award & Option Grants

Brewin Dolphin Holdings PLC
12 June 2007



BREWIN DOLPHIN HOLDINGS PLC



Issue and award of shares and grant of options over shares under the Brewin
Dolphin Holdings PLC Senior Employee Matching Share Purchase Scheme



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 recently 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. 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 11th June 2007 in Jersey, the trustee acquired by subscription and awarded to
relevant participating employees 485,006 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 485,006 shares to relevant participating employees.

The shares have been issued to and awarded by the trustee nil paid at a price of
217.5p 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 11th June 2007 was 217.5p).  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 11th June 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 until 11th June 2011, and
otherwise as set out in the scheme, at a price of 217.5p per share (no payment
was made on grant) normally at any time between 11th June 2011 and 11th June
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 exercise.
