Deutsche Asset & Wealth Management (DeAWM) has confirmed that it has agreed to sell the regional business of Tilney, a subsidiary of its wealth management business in the UK, to a company controlled by the Permira funds.

Tom Slocock, head of wealth management in the UK for DeAWM, said: 'Deutsche Asset & Wealth Management will continue to focus on providing wealth management services from our London office. We are expanding the range of high quality solutions we offer wealth management clients and their families.'

Permira will acquire the Tilney businesses in Birmingham, Edinburgh, Glasgow and Liverpool. The transaction is expected to be completed by the end of the second quarter of 2014.
