Bower has acquired and amalgamated Sixty Plus – an independent financial adviser firm specialising exclusively in equity release, into our operation with immediate effect.
The Sixty Plus team, including advisers and David Wright – formerly Managing Director of Sixty Plus – will be joining the Bower team.
Following the acquisition, the total number of advisers now working for Bower has increased by 40% in the past year.
David Wright brings more than 20 years’ experience in the financial services sector to Bower. He set up Sixty Plus in 2006, and has worked on the front-line as an adviser over the last ten years, providing the very best in impartial, quality advice to his customers and scooping up numerous accolades in the process.
The partnership follows the announcement that we are looking to expand our adviser team significantly.
We look forward to welcoming everyone from Sixty Plus into the Bower family.
Geoff Charles, CEO of Bower, comments:
“The addition of Sixty Plus and David Wright to the Bower team will help to fortify us further, allowing us to reach out and help more customers than ever before. Bower is in the middle of a period of sustained growth, and this deal will add another layer of expertise – and added capacity – to our business. The amalgamation with Sixty Plus will allow us to forge forwards with expanding our offering to meet the growing needs of our customers.”
Equity release specialist David Wright, comments:
“Bower has established an enviable reputation among consumers and advisers alike. The ethos of the company – to advise and not simply sell – creates a nurturing, ethical atmosphere in which to operate, one that fits well with the values Sixty Plus stood for. Together, our combined manpower will make a tangible impact on the lives of many more over-55s. Equity release is booming and we are going to make sure that as our business grows, the quality of advice we provide stays second to none.”
