Old Mutual advice arm rebrands under Quilter banner

National advice business Old Mutual Private Client Advisers has completed its rebrand to Quilter Private Client Advisers as part of Quilter Plc’s two-year managed separation strategy.

The rebrand follows the renaming of parent company Quilter Plc, formerly Old Mutual Wealth, which separated from South African company Old Mutual Plc earlier this year.

Quilter PCA was established in 2015 and has six regional offices in Devon, Cumbria, Chester, London, Yorkshire and Birmingham.

Commenting on the rebrand, Quilter chief marketing officer Michelle Andrews says: “One of Quilter’s beliefs is in the value of face to face advice. It was therefore important to complete this rebranding early in the process of becoming Quilter.”
