Consolidator Perspective Financial Group has bought Investment Principles, a financial advisory business based in northwest England.

The acquired entity will join Perspective (West)’s operation, which has branches in Chester and Oswestry.

Investment Principles founder Kathy Richards will serve as a consultant, working with Perspective’s advisers to support the transition.

The deal, whose financial terms were not disclosed, marks Perspective’s second deal in a month.

The consolidator acquired Galloway Whitfield (Life & Pensions), a Newcastle-based financial advisory firm this January.

Perspective group practice director Ian Wilkinson, said: “This is another good acquisition for Perspective of a high-quality, well-respected IFA firm, which further builds our presence in north west England, an area of strength for the group where we already have a significant client base, which we are keen to build further.
