IFA acquirer and wealth manager Bellpenny has acquired Walton on Thames-based IFA Entire Wealth Management.
The IFA provides national coverage, £100m of funds under management and more than 1,000 active clients.
The acquisition follows two accountant-tied IFA purchases in May this year, Price Bailey and Foot Davson.
The purchase brings total assets under management for the group to £850m and is the 9th acquisition.
Bellpenny chief executive Kevin Ronaldson (pictured) said: "Six months on from implementation of the Retail Distribution Review (RDR), we're seeing no evidence of a decline in interest from prospective sellers of IFA businesses.
"This has enabled us to remain very selective in our acquisition strategy. Entire Wealth Management, with its high-quality client bank, is another excellent fit."
Entire Wealth Management managing director Simon Youlton said: "Entire has become a recognised brand after four years of growth, driven by maximizing opportunities within the marketplace.
"In light of the new dynamics of the post-RDR financial planning industry, this deal represents the best way forward for Entire's clients, staff and owners alike."
Bellpenny is a national wealth management company backed by investment management firm Oaktree.
