Adviser firms join forces

Essex IFA Scott & Casey Financial Management has bought M&M Financial Advisors.

M&M mainly specialises in advice to high-net-worth clients and advising companies on employee benefits.

It was set up in 1993 and has three advisers. Founders Fergus Mackenzie and Howard Mayes will remain with Scott & Casey but the third adviser is leaving the firm.

Scott & Casey Financial Management was established in 2000 and will have 16 advisers after the acquisition.

Director Tom Kilgallon says: “This is an exciting opportunity to develop Scott & Casey further.”
