HFM Columbus launches discretionary service

Wealth manager HFM Columbus has launched a discretionary fund management service to be headed up by investment manager Rob Pemberton.

The service has launched with £60m in assets under management and follows a trial period with selected clients earlier this year.

The company has also announced the expansion of its London office, for which it is looking to recruit four financial advisers this year and a further four more for 2013.

Director Marcus Carlton says:“The business outlook is steadily improving, and we now want to recruit experienced private client advisers with a transferable book of clients and generating income of at least £200,000 a year including fund based fees.

“HFM Columbus has been working in an RDR-friendly manner for the last 11 years and is ideally placed to operate in the new environment with a truly first class range of client services and support which enables our private client advisers to excel, operating at the peak of the industry.”
