British private banking firm Brown Shipley has formally added Nottingham to its nationwide network after acquisition of local financial advisory firm Hampton Dean.

Brown Shipley, which agreed to acquire Hampton Dean in July 2015, has confirmed that Hampton Dean has now been fully integrated into its national network.

This move will take Brown Shipley’s UK office count to six, adding to its offices in Manchester, London, Birmingham, Leeds and Edinburgh.

Brown Shipley said that the purchase of Hampton Dean is part of its strategy to strengthen its client base and deliver a planning-led proposition for its clients.

Brown Shipley CEO Ian Sackfield said: "I am delighted that Brown Shipley has formally extended its national footprint with the new Nottingham office.

"Not only has the Nottingham office and its team of 12 advisers expanded out national presence, but it has also enhanced our overall wealth planning proposition. With the backing of KBL European Private Bankers, our parent company, I am committed to continue growing Brown Shipley."
