Premier Wealth Management reveals expansion strategy

IFA Premier Wealth Management is targeting financial services firms in the North West of England over the next twelve months as part of its short-term expansion strategy.

The firm, which specialises in investment, taxation and inheritance tax planning for high net worth clients, recently acquired two businesses and says further acquisitions are at the heart of its expansion strategy. The Company has also expressed its intention to gain an AIM listing in the future.

Premier has reported a 50 per cent increase in business growth over the last two years despite ‘challenging’ market conditions and has also completed the second phase of a five-tiered expansion plan after moving offices in 2006.

Premier Wealth Management managing director Adrian Shandley says: “We are in this market from an extremely strong base and are offering the best multiples and packages in the marketplace. We are keen to make strategic alliances and acquisitions of quality financial services firms of any size in the North West of England”.
