Perspective Financial Group Ltd, the consolidation vehicle for IFA firms, has appointed Ian Wilkinson as its group practice director.
His role is to co-ordinate efforts and working relationships between all Perspective Group firms. He will provide Group resources to ensure firms achieve their individual goals whilst advising where required on day-to-day issues.
Wilkinson continues to be managing director of Newcastle-based IFA firm, Rutherford Wilkinson, which joined Perspective in December last year.
Damian Keeling, managing director of Perspective Financial Group Ltd, said: “Ian has already played a central role within the Group and his appointment as Group Practice Director formalises his position at a Perspective level. One of the many reasons why IFA firms opt to join Perspective is to take advantage of the different skills and experience that Group firms have to offer. Many of our firms offer specialist advice and services in a variety of areas and we actively encourage all practices to sound out and take advantage of this. Ian will co-ordinate this aspect of Perspective working life and will look to ensure these types of relationships work and that firms have all they need from us to deliver success in these areas.
