Former Conservative Chancellor Ken Clarke opened the refurbished offices of IFA firm Four Corners Financial Management last week.

The business, which is based in West Bridgford, Nottingham, recently renovated and moved to bigger offices after buying adviser firm Maplelord. Maplelord had three branches in the Leicestershire area but all staff are now work from the West Bridgford office. Four Corners also recently bought Walsall firm Stephen Craig Associates’ client book and now has 28 staff and over £110m in assets under management. Clarke, who is the local MP for Rushcliffe, discussed the current economic situation with Four Corners staff at the office opening. Managing director Phillip Bray says: “We were delighted to have Ken Clarke with us for our official opening, especially as he is an ex-Chancellor of the Exchequer. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the afternoon and he wished us every success for the future.”
