Our client is a highly profitable National Wealth Management Advisory Group with a healthy balance sheet. Employing advisers across multiple offices throughout the UK they provide local advice to clients.

The company have tried and tested experience of acquiring IFA firms where there is no intention of disturbing clients by leaving their investments on existing mandates and same charging structure during the deferred buyout period unless discounts can be offered from economies of scale. Another of their USPs is the ability for the seller to meet a selection of the most suitable financial adviser(s) to match individual clients needs in both complexity of advice and relationship alignment. This is carried out before a deal completes as part of your due diligence and the deal will only move forward when you are happy with your pairing of Financial Advisers.
