It is not in my nature to sell myself short. However, I need to clarify that M2 Financial will, in fact, not be looking to purchase “up to a 100 firms ” within the next 12 months as stated in Money Marketing (January 23). M2 is certainly ambitious but operating very much within the realms of reality. This claim was a reference to our plans to recruit up to 100 RIs by the end of the year, whether by acquiring sole trader IFAs or small and medium-sized operations. A year or two from now the sky's the limit!
