Close Asset Management has agreed a strategic tie-up with IFA consultancy Paradigm Partners.
The partnership will provide Paradigm firms with access to Close investment products, services and support, including IHT planning, investments, international pensions and QROPS.
Close says the move is intended to help strengthen its IFA relationships and offer a wider range of services to Paradigm's firms.
"Signing our first strategic partnership deal is a pivotal development for our business growth plans and we are thrilled to have secured this agreement with such an innovative and forward thinking organisation," says Close director of intermediary sales Robert Imbert.
"We look forward to building strong relationships with Paradigm and the firms it supports and anticipate further connections of this kind in the future, signalling our commitment to the UK IFA market."
