Sky News has reported today that the company’s private equity majority shareholders Inflexion are carrying out a review of options for the group.
One option could include a sale.
Financial Planning Today has asked Succession Wealth and Inflexion for comment.
The firm was set up by industry legend Simon Chamberlain who died in 2017.
The firm has itself acquired many Financial Planning businesses over the past decade but had to furlough some staff during the pandemic.
The senior management team has also undergone several changes in the past few years.
Succesion's team of team of more than 170 Wealth Planners includes Chartered Financial Planners, Certified Financial Planners and Fellows of the Personal Finance Society.
Sky News says that Inflexion, a private equity firm which took a controlling stake in 2014, is expected to launch an auction of Succession early next year.
Succession has about £8.2bn in assets under administration and is one of the UK's biggest wealth managers.
The company is run by James Stevensons who joined Succession six and half years ago from Sesame Bankhall Group.
In recent years the company has tried to expand into new areas, launching Succession Sports & Entertainment, a specialist advice arm for sporting and entertainment professionals, earlier this year. The new advice arm plans to offer established and young professionals financial advice and education as well as offering Financial Planning advice to retired professionals.
