Charles Stanley buys Garrison; FINANCE.
Garrison, described by Stanley as one of the leading discount financial intermediaries in the UK, specialises in selling units trusts and other packaged investments in a variety of "wrappers" such as IS As and pensions.
Garrison administers clients' assets worth some pounds 200 million and another pounds 175 million in collective funds.
Mike Lilwall, a director of Stanley, stressed the acquisition will make no difference to clients of its Birmingham office run by Lawrence Fagg.
"It is a different type of client, purely execution only," he said. "All the Birmingham clients are advisory or discretionary."
Sir David Howard, Stanley's chairman, commented "Garrison with its well-established name, is an excellent fit for the range of services offered by Charles Stanley. Strategically this is a further expansion for us into the strongly growing execution-only area of the market."
