Wealth firm snaps up four advisory businesses
by Jun Merrett on Jan 10, 2013 at 08:52
National wealth manager and IFA consolidator Bellpenny has boosted assets under advice by £300 million after acquiring four IFA firms.
Bellpenny acquired Tunbridge Wells-based Brunning Newman Houghton, Sussex-based Private Portfolio, Essex-based Solutions Financial Services and Nottingham-based Vermillion Wealth.
The four firms are the consolidator's first signed deals following its launch in October 2012 and means it now has more than 2,500 active clients.
Kevin Ronaldson (pictured), Bellpenny's chief executive said: 'These deals mean we have gone from zero to £300 million funds under advice in just three months. With a number of other major acquisitions still in the pipeline, we have a thoroughly exciting 2013 to look forward to.
'It’s no small step for those selling IFA businesses which have been built up over many years, with strong client bonds having been forged. That’s why all the IFAs we’ve dealt with have taken such comfort from Bellpenny’s relentless client-focused ethos, and from the high standards of professionalism they see in every area of our business.'
