Support services provider Threesixty attracted over 5,000 IFAs by the end of 2009.
Threesixty partner Phil Young says the firm broke the 5,000 ceiling on December 31, last year.
Young says: “2009 was a tough year but we have helped a number of firms grow both organically and through acquisition, and have also expanded our range of outsource services to reduce the bottom line to our intermediary clients.
“This has swelled adviser numbers without diluting the reputation for quality support that we are absolutely committed to.”
Young says the firm is now “optimistic” for 2010.
