Yorkshire based IFA and general insurance broker RP Hodson is launching its own investment arm
RP Hodson Asset Management aims to offer investors a range of services from portfolio analysis to advisory management on collective investments such as unit trusts and offshore bonds.
The firm has appointed Andrew Rattray to head up the firm as managing director and former Yorkshire and England cricketer Richard Hutton as market analyst.
RP Hodson group managing director Phillip Hodson says: "The group has offered asset management advice to clients for a number of years now, but never at this level or scale.
"I am confident our newly created company will have an integral role in RP Hodson's growth."
