He said: ‘My primary concern was for my clients and my professional intermediary ‘clients’, and this move is indisputably in their interests.
‘Albert E Sharp have the experience, the expertise and the support infrastructure you would expect from a business highly focused on client and intermediary services and I am very excited about joining a group of like-minded, highly qualified individuals in an environment that is focused on these services.’

His wide industry experience and particular focus on the IFA market will benefit our service offering and I'm sure help us achieve our progressive growth strategy.’
