Tilney Bestinvest beefs up presence in Midlands with Webb Holton business


Tilney Bestinvest is to acquire the business of Webb Holton & Associates.

Webb Holton is a long-established financial planning firm based in Birmingham, which provides trusted and impartial advice to both businesses and private clients. The integration will scale up Tilney Bestinvest’s presence in the Midlands with the addition of four experienced advisers and enhance its ability to advise both individuals and corporate clients.   

Peter Hall (pictured), Chief Executive of Tilney Bestinvest, says: “Building out our presence in financial planning across the UK is a key strategic priority for Tilney Bestinvest and the integration of Webb Holton’s business represents a further milestone in this respect. I have a lot of respect for the Webb Holton team who have a very high level of professionalism and expertise.  

“We aim to be a leader in pensions in the UK and we are pursuing that strategy through a combination of new hires, office openings, acquisitions and our forthcoming partnership with Saga. Our recent launch of our At Retirement service offers help to people who want to do it themselves. The integration of Webb Holton expands our ability to help people who want face-to-face advice. The deal fits extremely well with our strategy and we are actively pursuing other acquisitions where the people and cultural fit is compelling.”

Nigel Lister, a Director of Webb Holton, says: “We are very excited to be joining Tilney Bestinvest and especially to be part of its growing presence in the Birmingham wealth management scene. The synergy between our team and Tilney Bestinvest is excellent, with an absolute focus on providing high quality advice and excellent client service.”
