The company says the recruitment of Mr Charlesworth underlines the growth of the business since Continuum left the Caerus network and became directly authorised in November last year.
In January DFM Marlborough Group Holdings took a 19.99% stake in the Continuum Business for an undisclosed sum.
Mr Charlesworth said: “Continuum has a deep understanding of an adviser’s needs and their track record of delivering exceptional adviser support is impressive.”
Continuum’s managing partner Martin Brown said: “Gary is an outstanding adviser and further expands our business in the North West.
Mr Brown added: “Since becoming directly authorised we have experienced a significant increase in new adviser enquiries.”
Assets under influence have increased to over £800m and are forecast to exceed £1bn in the next 12 months, the company said.
