Located in Manchester, The Roberts Partnership is a financial planner and wealth manager, consisting of seven advisers and has £450m under management.
This latest acquisition, completed for an undisclosed sum, is part of Brown Shipley’s strategy to build up its client proposition.
Brown Shipley said The Roberts Partnership deal will ‘further enhance regional presence’ and its service to clients.
The acquisition will complete on 1 November 2016, with The Roberts Partnership becoming a subsidiary of Brown Shipley and ultimately being folded into its Manchester office.
Brown Shipley CEO Ian Sackfield said: “I am pleased to announce today’s acquisition of The Roberts Partnership. Following on from our acquisition of Hampton Dean last year and KBL epb’s acquisition of Insinger de Beaufort, it further supports our growth plans, particularly in terms of enhancing our wealth planning proposition to meet the current and future needs of our clients. The two businesses have natural synergies, in particular a shared emphasis on leading with advice for clients, so I am confident the new team will make an important contribution to Brown Shipley and its future success.”
“Brown Shipley and The Roberts Partnership are an excellent fit,” added Tony Antczak, chairman at The Roberts Partnership. “Both firms have highly skilled people providing their clients with wealth planning and investment services.”
