Progeny acquires Hampshire Planner

Financial Planning and professional services firm Progeny has acquired Hampshire-based Financial Planning firm Coll Perkins for an undisclosed sum.

Progeny said the deal will allow Progeny to further expand its presence in the South of England.

Coll Perkins is a Financial Planning firm specialising in retirement planning, multi-generational advice, and widows and divorcees, based in Fareham, Hampshire.

It was founded by Chartered Financial Planner Mark Perkins in 2011.

Mr Perkins said: “Joining a multi-disciplinary professional services firm like Progeny will allow us to grow and develop while staying true to our values and founding principles.

“It will also bring benefits of scale and scope and comes with new opportunities for our team and our clients.

“We can continue to deliver exceptional service and build long-lasting and trusting relationships, while now offering them an even wider range of market-leading services.

“The ethos of Progeny closely matches our own and we’re looking forward to the fresh potential and productive results that joining them will bring.”
