Investment manager and advisory firm Brewin Dolphin has opened a new office in Ipswich.
The office will be initially headed by divisional director Nicholas Barber.
Barber will be replaced within three months by investment managers Andrew Wheeler, Toby Sellers and Matthew Shields who will take over the running of the office.
There will be six additional staff at the office - four advisers and two support staff.
The office marks a further expansion into East Anglia. The group already has an office in Norwich.
The office will be initially located at Felaw Maltings on Ipswich Waterfront, a central hub for the business community in the area.
The team will take up permanent premises in Prince's Street later in the year.
Midlands regional director at Brewin Dolphin Robin Beer said: "Suffolk is an important region for us and we are delighted to welcome Nicholas and the rest of the team."
