Tilney to go on adviser hiring spree in 2018

The financial planning firm Tilney has announced that it is planning to grow through the hire of financial advisers during 2018.
The acquisition of rivals has driven Tilney’s growth over previous years, such as the purchase of Midas Investment Management in 2017. As a result of this external growth, Tilney has reported £23 billion in client assets.
The firm’s head of financial planning, Andy Cowan, said:
“Despite a considerable focus on integration, however, the business has pleasingly seen significant organic growth during 2017. We have also been the recipients of a range of service awards, of which we are very proud, and more importantly delivered first class investment returns for clients.
“At the core, our business objectives for 2018 remain the same; to help our clients set realistic goals and then work with them to help realise their life objectives by developing financial plans which optimise the effectiveness of their wealth in underpinning those goals.
“Our strength and depth in analysis and expertise ensure our clients’ plans keep pace with a changing world, and that our advice continues to be fit for purpose and relevant.”
Mr Cowan also seems undeterred by the regulation changes that will be taking place in 2018, such as the General Data Protection Regulation and Mifid II, commenting that Tilney’s preparation for these changes is “well advanced”.
