Chase de Vere is to looking to boost its ranks with the addition of 20 advisers.

The firm will be recruiting across its Basingstoke, Bath, Birmingham, Cambridge, Cardiff, Chester, Glasgow, Leeds, London, Manchester and Tyne & Wear offices.

The company currently employs 195 IFAs.

Chase de Vere chief executive Stephen Kavanagh says: “We want to grow our business by recruiting more good quality advisers. We are a profitable company, with a strong supportive parent company, a client-focused service proposition and we are staunchly independent.”

Chase de Vere saw profits increase 34 per cent to £5.4m in 2015 and says it will benefit from more firms in the market offering restricted advice.

Kavanagh says: “I firmly believe the best advisers want to give independent financial advice.

“With most of the larger advice firms now giving restricted advice and a growing number of smaller firms following suit, Chase de Vere can provide a home for those who, like us, want to continue to provide good quality independent financial advice and service to their clients.”
