Tilney to return to Scotland after Permira's purhcase

THE Tilney brand is to return to Edinburgh and Glasgow after private equity firm Permira bought those parts of Deutsche Bank's UK wealth management arm based outside London, writes Tim Sharp.

Permira is to combine the business with London-based Bestinvest, which has extensive execution-only activities, and was bought from 3i last year.

The move affects 50 staffers in Tilney's Edinburgh and Glasgow offices, and those based in Liverpool and Birmingham.

Permira partner Philip Muelder said: "The UK wealth management industry has strong growth characteristics but is currently very fragmented.

"In combining Tilney and Bestinvest, we will bring together two highly regarded firms to create a truly market leading, UK-wide wealth manager."

The Tilney name will be used for its discretionary management activities.
