Navigation Wealth expands presence in East Yorkshire with BRC acquisition

Navigation Wealth Management has acquired Dalton-based BRC Wealth Management, in a deal which adds £40m funds under management to Navigation.

The acquisition comes during Navigation’s growth drive, where it has seen its team tripling in size in the past three years.

Matt Hammond, chief executive at Navigation Wealth, which has offices in Beverley and Wakefield, said: “We are delighted to welcome BRC to the Navigation family at such an exciting time for the firm.

Martin Baltazar, BRC’s owner, will join Navigation’s financial adviser team under the terms of the deal.

Mr Hammond continued: “Not only do we have a highly skilled adviser joining us in Martin, the acquisition will also help support the recruitment of additional advisors in the East Yorkshire area, which will prove a huge asset for both our clients and stakeholders.”

Mr Baltazar said: “By moving to Navigation Wealth Management, I am securing the services of a full professional team to support me and my clients in one go, a team that cares about people and takes the time to really understand what is in the best interests of their clients, both in the short and long term.

“This was a fundamental part of my decision as some clients have been with me for over 25 years – and the advice we give has the potential to make a real difference to their financial wellbeing.”
