Brewin adds to south east exposure with Basingstoke buy

Brewin adds to south east exposure with Basingstoke buy

Brewin Dolphin has acquired Basingstoke-based advice firm Aylwin. 

The deal, which was completed for an undisclosed sum, will see Aylwin founder David de Krester join Brewin to head up its new Winchester branch.

Two Aylwin advisers and support staff will join de Krester when the deal completes early next year. 

In a letter to clients, de Krester, who founded Aylwin in 2002, said: 'I am pleased to tell you that my co-director Derek Langton and I will continue to look after your financial planning needs from Brewin Dolphin’s new offices in Winchester.

'In future, you will benefit from the broader support and resources of Brewin Dolphin including the insight of their in-house research team.'

Brewin regional director Jonathan Tweedie added: 'We are delighted to welcome David and his team to Brewin Dolphin and to announce David as head of our new Winchester office. He has a proven track record of providing excellent client outcomes, and leading a high performing financial services business. I’m sure he’ll be a success as he heads up the already strong team.'

The move comes after Brewin Dolphin moved its Bournemouth office to Winchester earlier this month in a bid to increase its footprint in southern England.   

The existing client-facing team includes Adam Jarvis, Hannah Dampney and Matthew Lyth. 

'We’re seeing an increasing need for trusted and expert advisers to take the strain from those who need help with their finances in these uncertain times,' Tweedie added.
