Beaufort looks for three ‘farmers’ in expansion drive

Reading-based Beaufort Asset Management is looking to hire up to three advisers to help service a growing client bank.

Andrew Elson (pictured), chartered financial planner at the firm, said he was looking for new recruits who would fit the ‘farmer’ mould.

‘We’re looking for what I like to call “farmers”: they’re looking after clients and building long-term relationships, not looking out there for new blood all the time,’ he said.

‘They need to be the right quality, [Beaufort] is a very risk-free business and we don’t want to bring on any possible risk. It could take me a few months to find the right people,’ he added.

Elson left Honister Partners in July last year to join fledgling national firm Beaufort Group, of which Beaufort Asset Management is a member.

Beaufort Group is aiming to grow adviser numbers to around 50 from the current 35 in the next three to five years.
