Discretionary wealth management provider Brewin Dolphin has acquired Aylwin, a Basingstoke-based IFA firm, that will join its Winchester business.
Brewin has been trying to expand its business in the south of England after moving its offices from Bournemouth to Winchester last month.
David de Krester, the former director of Aylwin, will lead the Winchester office, incorporating Brewin’s and former Aylwin’s staff together.
The financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.
Need for advisers
Jonathan Tweedie, regional director at Brewin Dolphin, said: “We are delighted to welcome David and his team to Brewin Dolphin and to announce David as head of our new Winchester office.
“We’re seeing an increasing need for trusted and expert advisers to take the strain from those who need help with their finances in these uncertain times.
“We serve the financial needs of our local clients, with the strength and influence of the Brewin Dolphin name behind us.”
The wealth management company has 30 offices across the UK, Ireland and Jersey.
