Towry snaps up Scottish firm as shopping spree continues
by Jun Merrett on Sep 25, 2013 at 10:42
Towry has acquired Aberdeenshire-based Conclusion Financial Planning.
The acquisition will bring Towry a further 50 clients and £15 million in assets under advice with the firm's director John Pope and his son Guy Pope, who is an adviser at the firm, moving to Towry's Aberdeen office.
John Pope was previously president of the Insurance Institute of Aberdeen and was chairman of the North of Scotland for the Personal Finance Society.
Andy Cowan (pictured), head of wealth advice at Towry, said: 'Towry has been keen to seek growth opportunities in some of our most important client regions, including in Aberdeenshire, and as such we see Conclusion Financial Planning as an excellent fit for our business. We welcome both John and Guy to the team.'
Earlier this month Towry acquired Bluefin Personal Consulting from AXA UK for an undisclosed sum, gaining £500 million in assets, 1,500 clients and 70 support staff.
