The firm’s managing director also hinted at future acquisitions and mergers to capitalise on a shrinking advisory sector post-RDR.

Almary Green has also launched a graduate scheme to train up potential advisers of the future. Its head office is undergoing a refit to accommodate the newly expanding team.

Mr Lamb said it was necessary to take on more staff due to a spike in enquiries since the beginning of the year.

Mr Lamb said: “We are committed to growing our business in a controlled manner and one of the routes to achieving this will be through mergers and acquisitions, made possible through the shifting dynamics of the advisory market following RDR. We are excited about the next stage of our development.”

Mr Lamb was a senior consultant with Equitable Life before setting up Almary Green in 2001. It now has two offices in Norwich as well as an additional branch in Wisbech, Cambridgeshire.

Background

Almary Green is not the only firm in recent months to seek new advisers. National advisory firm Towry, Nottingham-based Fiscal Engineers, London-based Serenity Financial Planning and Bath-based Beacon Financial Planning have all announced their intention to expand with key hires.
