"We are pleased to complete Ludlow's first acquisition since joining the Group.  We continue to work closely with Ludlow's experienced team as we pursue other transactions of a similar nature to further expand our growing wealth management presence in the north of England and Scotland".


Ian Hemingway, Chief Executive of Ludlow, said:


"Ludlow has a track record of successful deals involving retiring financial advisers, a model which Mattioli Woods continues to support.  We look forward to working with the Ferguson team to responsibly integrate their clients into the Group over the coming months, whilst continuing to explore other opportunities within the market".
