The founder members of Thinc (now Bluefin) have left the company following a restructure that will see a shift to a fee-based model across the private client division.
Gregg Taylor and Neil Harkin have left the company "to pursue new challenges" as a senior management team of Julie Lord and Mike Godfrey is installed under managing director, private clients, Suvan de Soysa.
Lord and Godfrey will lead two regional teams for Bluefin Advisory Services supported by a central team which includes Ian Shipway and Patrick Murphy.
Bluefin says it is restructuring its private client business as part of a strategy to align the company further with the RDR.
The business will operate on a fee-based model across all private client services, a model it says already forms a key facet of Bluefin Wealth Management.
Bluefin Corporate Consulting, which sits within Bluefin Advisory Services, is unaffected by the changes.
John Simmonds, chief executive of Bluefin Advisory Services, says: "We believe the RDR presents Bluefin with an unprecedented opportunity.
"Just as the regulatory climate is set to change significantly with RDR, the market has been transformed over the last 18 months and I believe the changes we have made and the review we are conducting will stand us in excellent stead, providing a basis for growth in the lead up to RDR and beyond."
