Elsewhere within the group, Brooks’ advisory funds under management rose by 10.5% from £374 million to £413 million over the first three months of the year, while the group’s arm Braemer Estates, saws assets under administration climb up by 6.27% from £1.07 billion to £1.14 billion over the same period.

Brooks Macdonald chief executive Chris Macdonald said: ‘Despite flat markets in the first quarter, we have made good progress in growing assets under management in all areas of the business. Overall, in our financial year to date, discretionary funds under management have risen 16%.

‘The acquisition of DPZ Capital at the start of the new quarter has expanded our International business based in Jersey and adds a further c.£360 million of funds under discretionary management. The acquisition of DPZ is a further exciting development for the group.’
