Independent Wealth Planners acquires Premier Wealth Management

Independent Wealth Planners (IWP) has announced the acquisition of Premier Wealth Management.

The acquisition increases IWP’s assets under management by approximately £260m.

Premier is a chartered financial planning business based in Southport, specialising in delivering retirement and investment advice to high-net-worth individuals.

The firm will join IWP’s Lancashire regional firm, Prosper Wealth Management, headed by chief executive, David Barton.

He commented: “We are delighted to have Adrian and the rest of the Premier team onboard. The addition of Premier expands our coverage in Lancashire, providing more consumers with access to IWP’s exceptional, independent financial planning services.

Premier comprises four advisers, two paraplanners, and six administration staff, all of whom remain in place as part of the deal. Managing director and chartered financial planner, Adrian Shandley, added: “IWP presented a big attraction to us. Not only has it invested in our business up front, but also has not made any wholesale or disruptive changes to our business model, ensuring a smooth transition for our clients. I am really excited to start working as part of the Group.”
