KBS Corporate Completes the Sale of Admiral Wealth Management
Admiral Wealth Management offers comprehensive investment and pension advice. The company benefits from a large client base, the majority of whom provide reliable, repeat business on an ongoing basis. Admiral Wealth Management has an excellent reputation which has been developed since 1989.
The shareholders of Admiral Wealth Management instructed KBS Corporate with the sale of their business to allow them to facilitate their retirement plans.
KBS Corporate implemented a diverse research strategy which resulted in 54 interested parties being identified with the majority coming from UK trade buyers. The successful offer came from Kingswood, a fully integrated wealth and investment management group that operates internationally.
David Lawrence, UK CEO at Kingswood, commented on the deal: “Since becoming UK CEO at the turn of the year, I have focussed on building momentum in the business and expanding our capabilities to integrate and grow. Our focus on enhancing the client experience is paying dividends and I am delighted that we now have approaching GBP200 million in our internal MPS. I am thrilled to announce our first acquisition under my leadership and look forward to welcoming Mike Biggin, Adam Harrison, and the Admiral team to Kingswood. Admiral is a highly regarded provider of financial advisory services in North Lincolnshire and Yorkshire having consistently delivered a high-quality service to clients for over 30 years.
“The Kingswood model is designed to provide a centralised, efficient support infrastructure to manage the routine, but time consuming tasks required across compliance, finance, human resources, risk and technology, allowing the Admiral team to deliver a superior level of service to their clients. I am delighted that Mike and Adam have agreed to stay with the business as it enters a new phase as part of the Kingswood Group and I very much look forward to working with them.”
Annie Shiel, KBS Corporate Associate Corporate Director, advised Admiral Wealth Management.
