Davy PC acquires Belfast adviser Square Seven

Davy PC acquires Belfast adviser Square Seven

Davy Private Clients, the UK subsidiary Ireland’s largest stockbroker and wealth manager of J&E Davy, has acquired Belfast adviser Square Seven for an undisclosed sum.

Square Seven runs around £74 million in assets on behalf of 400 clients.

‘Northern Ireland is a material part of Davy’s overall private client business, and we see it as an area of key strategic growth in the coming years,’ said Stephen Felle, managing director of Davy Private Clients.

‘We will continue to review further potential acquisitions in Northern Ireland such as that offered by Square Seven.

‘Furthermore, the UK-centric investment, operational and regulatory processes we have established in Northern Ireland gives Davy the platform to assess growth opportunities into the rest of the UK, and to build out our service offering to IFAs in Northern Ireland and Great Britain.’

The purchase is the company’s fourth acquisition in the last four two years, following Bloxham in 2012 and more recently AIB Investment Managers and iCubed.
