Paul Bradshaw is to chair the board at Sumus, trading name of the Falcon Group and FSAS.
Bradshaw is chairman of Nucleus Financial and non-exec director of Merchant Investors Assurance.
He has run a number of financial services businesses including Skandia Life, Scottish Amicable International and latterly Abbey’s insurance and asset management operations.
Head of investment solutions Piers Denne says; “The launch of The Brunel Funds is the result of a year long project concentrating on added value and additional services to clients, whilst building value within Sumus Plc via Falcon Group. Advising on assets is one skill, but being able to mandate the assets out to fund managers completely changes the dynamics of the relationship in favour of the adviser and the client”
