Providing Wren Sterling With Regulatory Due Diligence Support

Our client, national financial planning firm the Wren Sterling Group, has bought a majority stake in Cornwall-based financial advisory firm Stockdale & Co.

The Investments team at Thistle Initiatives was engaged by Wren Sterling to undertake compliance due diligence on Stockdale & Co.

The majority stake comes after Wren Sterling expanded its Northern reach by adding Lancashire-based Callisto Wealth to the group, which Thistle Initiatives provided acquisition due diligence support with. 

In 2023 so far, Wren Sterling has added a combined £400m in assets and 2,000 clients to its books after acquiring two advice businesses, Ralston Bennett Financial Planning, and its appointed representative business, Aspects Financial.

Alex Paschalis, Investments Director at Thistle Initiatives said: "I would like to express my congratulations to the entire Wren Sterling team on this transaction. Thistle Initiatives has a long-standing relationship with Wren Sterling and it has been a privilege to work alongside them, we look forward to continuing to work with them in the years to come”.
