National financial firm opens first London office following acquisition
Perspective Financial Group has announced the opening of its first London office following its acquisition of one of the city’s financial planning and wealth management firms.
The acquisition of Norwood-based firm Thornton Springer Financial Services LLP has enabled the group to establish a London hub, growing its network of national offices to 15.
Ian Wilkinson, group managing director of Perspective Financial Group, commented: “Establishing our first hub in London is a significant step and we are pleased to have a firm of the calibre of Thornton Springer joining the Group. We welcome Peter Weston, Andrew Walford and their staff to the team.
“Like them, we believe in delivering an outstanding personal service to clients from local offices. We can now provide additional support to them with our strong and professional central service functions including compliance, finance, marketing and HR, meaning advisers spend their time with their clients.”
The deal is Perspective’s third acquisition in 2019 so far, with the group focusing on merging established financial advisory firms with existing offices, as well as opening new locations.
Speaking about the acquisition Peter Weston, partner at Thornton Springer Financial Services LLP, added: “We have got to know Perspective and its management team well through this process, and it is clear that both our clients and the business will benefit from Perspective’s additional expertise and greater resources.
“We will continue to operate with the same team from the same premises, ensuring our combination of personal service, technology and competitive charging will continue. We are impressed with Perspective’s vision and pleased to be their first London office.”
