Cofunds is doubling the size of its platform consultancy team from eight to 15 people.
New recruits include four e-business specialists from Skandia - Andy Higham, Damian Bryant, Brian Moffat and Simon Warr.
"We are really committed to supporting advisers through the RDR and expanding this team will add momentum to the already well-received platform consultancy service," says sales and marketing director Alastair Conway (pictured).
The expansion of its team - the result of five external appointments and several internal promotions - means it now comprises regional platform consultants, office-based consultants and trainers.
"Many advisers have asked us for help with client segmentation, pension consolidation, investment processes and client service propositions, and this shows we are responding," adds Conway.
"We know it is important to support our clients, so we will be focusing on platform implementation, user forums, ongoing support and hands-on training right across the country.
"We are delighted to add further expertise into the team. With significant financial services experience each, our new colleagues will provide solid support for advisers working to position their businesses in readiness for RDR."
