Adviser network Tenet has snapped up Chartwell Independent and Maguire Financial, forming a South East hub.
Financial terms of the transactions were not divulged.
Both the acquired entities are Tenet’s network members and headquartered in Bromley near London.
The takeovers were carried out under the practice buyout scheme of Tenet. The scheme provides an exit strategy for retirement to Tenet’s network members.
Chartwell principal Sally Molony along with Davie Maguire from Maguire will retire.
The deal increases Tenet’s regional hub count to seven, covering Preston, Northampton, Leeds, Edinburgh, Cardiff as well as Nottinghamshire.
Commenting on the latest acquisitions, Tenet group operations director Helen Ball said: “These two acquisitions offered a great opportunity to expand our network of advice into the South East.
“We’ll continue to establish further regional hubs in the year ahead.”
