Commenting, Lee Hartley, Chief Executive of Fairstone Group said:
“I’m pleased to welcome three highly accomplished partners to the business. It is clear that the success of our City operation continues to attract a great deal of interest from experienced advisers in the Greater London area. Fairstone is growing at a consistent rate and this is reflected in the increasing revenues generated not just by our City advisers, but across the Group, which saw us recently report a 29% increase in turnover for 2014. This trend shows absolutely no sign of slowing down, so it’s an exciting time to be joining the firm.”
Speaking of their appointment, Andrew Donnachie, said:
“I joined Fairstone because it is a national IFA with a growing brand across the UK. In recent months I have heard a great deal about the positive developments at the firm, including the launch of its Academy which will allow my clients to benefit through my continued professional development. I’m looking forward to working at Fairstone and building on my existing client base, using the support and protection of such a well-respected, Chartered firm.”
Hartley concluded: “Our power is in our people, and our clients will be able to benefit from the in-depth expertise that our new colleagues will bring to Fairstone. I look forward to working with Michael, Andrew and Jaswinder over the coming years, as we continue to make further strides forward.”
