National IFA firm Helm Godfrey reported a 13% before tax net profit increase last year, to £744,000.
Turnover for the advisory firm also jumped in the period, up 12% from £5.95m to £6.66m.
Helm Godfrey says 2007 was a year of “impressive growth”, with management continuing to actively recruit advisers and acquire IFA firms.
The firm currently has 40 qualified advisers, each with an average of 20 years experience.
Helm Godfrey managing director Bruce Wilson says the firm has thrived due to strong and decisive management, client centric advisers and a focus on profitability rather than turnover.
“2007 was another tremendous year for the business with turnover and profit once again at record levels,” he says.
“Key to that success, as with every year since the management buy-out in 1999, has been our ability to place clients and their needs at the very heart of the business.
“It is this approach that will ensure the business continues to deliver in today’s uncertain economic environment.”
