The company will target high net worth clients, specialising in investment solutions, tax planning, mortgages, property investment and pensions.
HFM Columbus director Gary Festa says: “After working together for the past six years and setting up the holding company last year, we are now firmly established as an excellent working partnership with the ability to share the talents of our high-calibre wealth managers.”
The group will begin trading on 1 May 2008.
HFM Columbus director Marcus Carlton says: “It’s a common feature of our business that we personally invest in most of the specialist structures we recommend so our interests are aligned with that of our clients.
“We are now broadly confident for a period of very strong growth for HFM Columbus and are especially interested in growing organically by acquiring smaller IFA firms that seek the benefit of becoming part of a secure and successful forward-looking concern.”
