Wealth manager Charles Stanley has announced plans to create a "super" office by merging its Bournemouth and Dorchester offices.
The firm said its offices in Bournemouth and Dorchester will merge together to create one hub to better support clients across Dorset and the south of England.
It is proposed the combined hub will be based in Bournemouth at its recently refurbished office, making it one of the largest wealth management offices in the region.
Last year, Charles Stanley merged its Southampton and Oxford offices in a similar move. Charles Stanley Bournemouth branch manager Gareth Pritchard said: "By merging the two offices we will create a regional hub that is better suited to servicing the needs of our clients across the region and will ensure we are in the right position to grow and develop our business going forward."
Managing director of investment management services Peter Kelk added: "Our proposal to bring together the two high quality offices in Dorchester and Bournemouth is a logical step that will strengthen both teams the services they offer.
"We are committed to our regional network across the UK, having opened three new offices in the last year and by ensuring we are well positioned to offer the highest levels of customer service and creating personal relationships for which we are well-known."
