Ludlow Wealth Management Group has expanded into Liverpool with the acquisition of Murphy & Associates.
The new Liverpool office brings Ludlows offices to five – its Southport HQ, Blackburn, Lytham and Preston.
The acquisition of wealth management firm Murphy & Associates, Rodney Street, Liverpool, is intended to help build Ludlow’s client base and begin an expansion into Merseyside.
The deal is the latest in a string of acquisitions for Ludlow, including Merseyside-based DT Lord and Preston’s Wallwork in recent years.
Ludlow is now one of the largest independently owned financial planning businesses in the North West, with 45 staff and £550 million assets under advice.
Sid Ludlow, chief executive of Ludlow Wealth Management Group, said: “Liverpool is where I first started working in wealth management so I am looking forward to renewing old acquaintances and meeting the many professionals I have got to know over the years.
“Our primary focus is to provide a first class service for all clients, old and new, and we’re all looking forward to an exciting new era.”
