Succession has acquired Birmingham-based Clay Rogers & Partners in a deal potentially worth over £10m


The purchase was made through a mix of cash and shares.

Clay Rogers has £450m of funds under management, and has been working with Succession since 2013.

Rogers says the business is now recruiting wealth planners and support staff.
