Consolidator Independent Wealth Planners UK (IWP) has continued its buying spree with the takeover of Stevenage-based Richmond House Wealth Management.
The acquired entity will serve as the consolidator’s regional hub in the Hertfordshire area.
IWP will use Richmond House’s wealth management offering as well as its investment management and corporate service offerings.
Richmond House will become IWP’s regional hub in the Hertfordshire area.
The acquired entity was founded in 1964 and rolled out a discretionary management service in 2006.
The firm’s employee strength is 35.
Richmond House CEO Paul Beasley said: “What attracted me to IWP was the ability to secure the future growth of Richmond House in a way that ensures continuity for our clients.

“In doing so the team will be able to focus on exemplary client service as they also continue to grow the business.”
