Bradbury Hamilton acquires Caversham Buchanan

Bradbury Hamilton is planning an acquisition spree following the purchase of Caversham Buchanan’s 10,000 strong client book.

Bradbury Hamilton managing director Sheriar Bradbury says the purchase of the liquidated firm’s business book is the first of a number of acquisitions it is in various stages of finalising.

He says: “This is clearly a difficult time for a great many adviser firms and I feel for the business owners who have to make the difficult decision to exit the market having built up a business and client bank from scratch in many cases. However, sentimentality should not be allowed to get in the way of ensuring clients continue to receive the high standard of service they have come to expect from their incumbent adviser and ensuring that the transition, whether at liquidation or retirement, is as smooth as possible.

“Without doubt the market for purchases at the moment is very good and we are lucky in that we have over the years honed our skill in liquidations and are able to move quickly and seamlessly.”

Many employers, and indeed many in the pensions industry itself, would like to see a period of no change during the next term of government. This would give all sides a chance to catch up and draw breath.
