The Financial Planning community can expect to see more acquisitions soon from Independent Wealth Planners, chief executive David Inglesfield has told Financial Planning Today magazine’s latest issue.
A number of sellers are “exploring their options” with the group, said Mr Inglesfield in an interview with Financial Planning Today.
He said that the group’s strategy has remained largely unchanged as it continues to look for more acquisitions, despite the effects of the Coronavirus pandemic.
Mr Inglesfield was interviewed as part of the Cover Feature for our most recent edition of Financial Planning Today Magazine.
Nigel Stockton, chief executive of wealth manager Ascot Lloyd, also revealed in the feature that his firm continues to look for acquisitions.
The feature looks at the firms resolutely focusing on growth despite the pandemic and asks several Financial Planners to share their tips for weathering the pandemic.
The feature looks at how a strong Financial Planning focus can give firms an advantage over their more transactional counterparts. It also looks at the role of technology, cost cutting exercises and marketing, as well as considering where the best opportunities for growth may lie.
