Castell Wealth management are delighted to announce our sponsorship of talented British jockey, Bryony Frost.

As a young, extremely motivated and hardworking professional female athlete Bryony represents all of the attributes that we at Castell aspire to support.

A win on International Woman’s Day at Exeter in the run up to Cheltenham was not a bad way to start her tenure with us either.

As a client she will be a great ambassador for our business, and she will be hosting a number of events for us over the coming months which you are welcome to attend.


Supporting Athletes

James Lindley, director at Castell says, "Bryony is an incredibly motivated and hard-working athlete who has dedicated her life to racing. This tireless mantra of devotion to riding and consistently continuing to persevere in her sport through good times and bad is what attracted us to aligning our business to sponsoring Bryony.

Bryony has famously spoken up for gender equality in racing, and putting her head above the parapet in a male-dominated sport added to our desire to support her. In finance there is a huge wealth divide between men and woman and having Bryony as an ambassador aligns to our company DNA."

The gender pay gap amongst all employees in the UK was 14.3% in 2023.

"As a business we are always looking to expand our presence in sport. There are so many parallels between the work athletes do and our role in supporting clients in fulfilling their financial aspirations. Both involve hard work, dedication to achieving goals and overcoming adversity and a tireless dedication to achievement." continues James.

Advice in Sport

James says, "Getting to know Bryony has been one of the most fulfilling career experiences for me. I am constantly reaching out to her finding out what races she has in the diary, what her strategy is and how things went in her previous race (much to her annoyance no doubt!) Getting our brand out to the racing community is our principal goal with this sponsorship deal, but also having Byrony as a figurehead for woman in sport who we can provide advice to is equally important as we grow our ‘advice in sport’ initiative."
