Ingledew back to his roots with BBN

Stephen Ingledew has returned to his IFA roots, leaving fund manager Schroder to join national IFA Berry Birch & Noble

Ingledew, who was an IFA for 10 years, joined Schroder as head of wholesale marketing in July from NPI. He will join BB&N as group marketing manager in November, replacing Hazel Montague who is retiring after 36 years with the company.

Ingledew, who will be based at the firm&#39s London office, believes the IFA market is going through a period of prolonged consolidation, which will be a bonus to firms that can take advantage.

Berry Birch & Noble have been on the acquisition trail, taking over national IFA Bradstock Financial Services and Moores Marr Bradley.

Ingledew says there may be further expansion, saying the job includes a chance to grow the firm. He says: “Berry Birch & Noble are ideally placed to take advantage because of the strength of their brand name.”

Montague says: “Stephen has wide experience in the marketing field both from the IFA side and from the product provider side.”
