Sovereign partner Alex Hay said: “Skerritts is a multi-award-winning business which has deservedly earned a first-class reputation in the industry. Richard and his team have consistently grown the company and made a number of acquisitions to further consolidate the firm’s position in the South East.

“With the development of a leading in-house investment management solution alongside, we consider the business to be strongly positioned for future growth. The market is highly fragmented, and we look forward to partnering Richard and the expanded team to develop Skerritts’ offering and geographic footprint through strategic acquisition.”

Commenting on the development, Skerritt said: “Sovereign’s investment and expertise in financial services, gives us a fantastic opportunity to accelerate our growth ambitions and enhance our capabilities.

“We look forward to further enhancing our capabilities and continuing to deliver the same level of service and care we are recognised for by our customers.”
