Thinc Group has bought Maidstone IFA Cameron Scott in a move aimed at bolstering its presence in the South-east.
Cameron Scott’s 18 advisers will continue to work out of their current offices as part of Thinc’s drive to open more regional offices.
Chief executive John Simmonds says the acquisition also reflects its developing group strategy of attracting specialist advisers.
Thinc acquired employee benefits consultant PIFC last month and now has around 1,000 advisers across the business. Simmonds says the strategy is to build a professional advice business that aggregates its assets largely through a fee-based model.
He says: “We have aggressive growth plans and are always looking to build on the Thinc tradition of actively recruiting the brightest and the best from across the industry.
“The acquisition of Cameron Scott adds another experienced and highly qualified team to Thinc Group and we are naturally delighted that they have chosen to join us at this time.”
