Carby is making a comeback with Capital Planning

Keith Carby is making his industry comeback as executive chairman of Tenet Group’s national IFA Capital Planning UK.

The former chairman and chief executive of Inter-Alliance says Capital Planning. which has 125 RIs, has the potential to become “the best IFA in the country”. He is will have a hands-on role at Capital Planning and will be involved with overall strategy for Tenet with a seat on the board.

Carby’s career includes spells at Allied Dunbar, J Rothschild Assurance, where he was a co-founder, and Inter-Alliance. He left Inter-Alliance after strategy differences when it agreed to merge with Millfield Group.

Carby says: “Since leaving Millfield, I have looked at options both within and out of the industry. I have known Barry Kayes and Simon Hudson at Tenet for years and we have often discussed working together. I believe there is no better IFA out there and am truly excited about the opportunity it brings, not just by joining Tenet but particularly Capital Planning.”
