Brown Shipley has acquired Nottingham-based independent financial planning firm Hampton Dean for an undisclosed sum.

Hampton Dean, which has 12 advisers and a total of 30 staff, will become a subsidiary of Brown Shipley following the deal.

“The two businesses have natural synergies, in particular a shared emphasis on leading with advice for clients, so I am confident the new team will make an important contribution to Brown Shipley and its future success.”

Brown Shipley has offices in London, Manchester, Birmingham, Leeds and Edinburgh. It manages more than £2.5bn for clients.
