Perspective Financial Group has acquired South London-based Thornton Springer Financial Services, creating a new London outpost for the firm.
Marking Perspective’s third acquisition this year, this expansion gives it a hub in the capital for the first time and expands its network to 15 offices across the UK, including Eastbourne, Marlborough, Chester and Newcastle upon Tyne. The new firm will be renamed Perspective (Thornton Springer).
Thornton Springer, which has been established for over 25 years, was originally part of an accountancy firm of the same name (a separate entity since 2006, and not included in this deal) and gained chartered status in 2011.
Ian Wilkinson, group managing director of Perspective, said: 'Establishing our first hub in London is a significant step and we are pleased to have a firm of the calibre of Thornton Springer joining the group.'
