Continuum has expanded its footprint in the south west region by partnering with a Barnstaple-based IFA.
The financial advice partnership has added chartered financial planner Curtis Netherway to its network of advisers, as of January 1.
According to his LinkedIn, Netherway previously worked at Natwest for 15 years in various roles including as a specialist finance advice manager and private investment management.
Following this, he started his own firm Curtis Netherway Financial Services, which was then an appointed representative of Vision Independent Financial Planning.
As part of Continuum, Netherway will continue to work in and around his native Barnstaple, with clients all over the south west region.
He said he appreciated the time and money Continuum invested in technology, something he was looking forward to utilising.
He said: “The foundations of providing independent financial advice – responsiveness to clients needs a willingness to go the extra mile and taking the long-term view may not be changing – but the way we provide advice is.
“It has become essential to embrace new technology to offer the service clients want and deserve, and the best way to do that is to work with a modern, forward-thinking firm with the expertise and resources required.”
Martin Brown, managing partner at Continuum, welcomed Netherway to the partnership.
He said: “We have always put client needs at the heart of what we do at Continuum. The approach that Curtis takes is the perfect match for our own.
“We are very pleased to have him – and his experience and enthusiasm – join us. Both Continuum and our clients – present and future will benefit from the skills that he brings.”
Last year, Continuum hired three advisers from rival firms Quilter Financial Planning, Spence & Spence and Tilney in the third quarter of the year.
