Investment management firm JM Finn & Co is set to consolidate its two offices in East Anglia.

Staff currently based in Ipswich will relocate to the firm’s Bury St Edmunds office, where the team will expand into ground floor space within the building, in Abbeygate Street, which was previously in retail use.

The combined branch will have a staff of more than 20, including 11 investment managers overseeing more than £1billion of assets for nearly 2,500 clients.

“Bringing together the two teams will provide additional benefits on all levels,” said Brett Bayliss, head of the East Anglian branch.

“Our existing clients will have a hugely improved site in which to meet with us in Bury, and for those clients located in Ipswich we will retain an office with meeting space.

“Our investment managers will benefit from sharing administrative resources and a wider breadth of intellectual capital to bounce investment ideas off, and in addition, we will be able to provide a more co-ordinated approach to servicing the flourishing intermediary community across the region.”

JM Finn, which earlier this month won the Best Discretionary Service title at the 2016 City of London Wealth Management Awards, is marking 10 years in East Anglia this year.
