Serenity Financial planning has become the latest firm to sign up to Nucleus as the IFA-owned wrap looks to substantially grow its number of member firms this year.
London-based Serenity, headed up by director Tina Weeks with three financial planners, becomes the 82nd member firm to take a stake in Nucleus.
"We are putting in place a big push this year to grow the number of member firms ahead of RDR, " says CEO David Ferguson (pictured). "We seem to be having a good start to the year so far."
Ferguson adds more sign-ups are imminent and reveals Nucleus is currently in discussions with around 60 IFA firms. But he stresses maintaining the quality of Nucleus member firms is more important than growing numbers.
"I am very excited Serenity has become a Nucleus member," says Tina Weeks. "It seems like the perfect alignment and the final piece of our transition jigsaw puzzle. Nucleus fits perfectly with our culture and ethos."
At the end of last year, Nucleus completed its £15m rights issue. The capital raising was undertaken to clear debt, with member firms and shareholders providing the funding.
