Sights set firmly on growth in turnover and staff numbers
After a busy and successful year, Sheriar Bradbury, managing director of London-based Bradbury Hamilton, is hoping to increase turnover and recurring income in 2013.
With four acquisitions under his belt from 2012, Bradbury will embark on a recruitment drive next year to boost adviser, paraplanner and support staff numbers at the firm.
‘We’ve had lots of activity, lots of success and a big influx of new clients,’ he said.
‘My goal is to get to £2.7 million turnover in the next 12 months. We had £1.65 million last year and we’re building toward the £2.5 million turnover mark, which would be great. But the goal is £2.7 million.’
Bradbury said he was less worried about profitability in 2013, as long as the firm did not incur a significant loss.
He said he wanted to continue his acquisition strategy into the New Year. ‘I think in the next two to three years there will be lots of deals and then that market will more or less finish,’ he said.
On a personal level, Bradbury would like to get his house renovated. He said he wanted to add a basement to his Hampstead home, which was originally a church.
