A DERBYSHIRE firm of independent financial advisers is expanding by taking on the work of a retiring practitioner in Ashbourne.
John Leeke, who was operating as Pinnacle Financial Intermediaries in King Edward Street, Ashbourne, will have his client list and goodwill taken on by Belper Independent Financial Solutions.
Mr Leeke became an independent financial adviser in 1998, launching Pinnacle in 2007, latterly part of Peak Management Associates.
Kevin Glover, principal of Belper Independent Financial Solutions, said: "We are delighted to be successors to a well-respected local independent financial adviser.
"We hope to extend the services that John built up over the years." The service is to be rebranded Ashbourne Independent Financial Solutions.
Mr Glover said: "John will continue to be available to his existing clients as he hands over the reins over the next few months.
"We will continue to work closely with Greg Parsons and his team at Peak Management Associates."
