Leading financial planning firm establish South Coast base

New office will provide services to clients across the region

Leading investment and financial planning group Tilney Bestinvest is pleased to announce the opening of a new office in the South Coast. Sitting within the Lakeside North Harbour business park just outside Portsmouth, the office will act as the headquarters for the firm’s new South Coast Financial Planning team, serving clients across the region.

The South Coast Financial Planning team was created in November 2015 with the senior hire of Devin Smith to the position of Regional Financial Planning Director for the South Coast. He is joined in the team by experienced financial planner Brian Martin.

Together, Mr Smith and Mr Martin will operate as Tilney Bestinvest’s ‘feet on the ground’ within a region ranging from Dorchester to Brighton. They will deliver financial advice to clients alongside investment managers as part of the firm’s unique ‘two expert’ approach, which delivers a high quality integrated wealth management service to clients.

Devin Smith, Tilney Bestinvest Regional Financial Planning Director for the South Coast, commented: “The establishment of the new South Coast office is a real boon for our clients in the region, who will be able to access high quality financial planning services with greater ease than ever before.

“Tilney Bestinvest is a firm that has invested heavily in its financial planning operations, at a time in which we have seen a remarkably high demand for trusted planning services. Our new South Coast team has a wealth of experience servicing the needs of clients in the region, and will provide high quality advice and service.”
