Financial advisers Ferguson Oliver rebrands as Chase de Vere
Angus-based independent financial advisers Ferguson Oliver has today been fully rebranded as Chase de Vere.
Ferguson Oliver was founded by Mike Ferguson in 1989, and he was subsequently joined by his twin brother Ken, with the two of them being the joint owners.
The company has been a prominent feature in the local community for the past 30 years supporting many local charities and events. They look after clients in the North-East of Scotland, from as far north as Inverness to as far south as Perth.
Chase de Vere acquired Ferguson Oliver in October 2019. The integration is now complete, with client propositions and computer systems fully aligned. From today, the company trades as Chase de Vere.
Mike Ferguson is also actively involved in the curling community, being the owner of Forfar Ice Rink and chairman of the Scottish Ice Rink Association, while Ken Ferguson is the chairman of Brechin City Football Club and also sits on the board of the Scottish Professional Football League and the Professional Game Board of the Scottish FA.
Mike Ferguson said: “The integration with Chase de Vere has gone remarkably smoothly considering the backdrop of the coronavirus and with all of our staff working from home. We have stayed in constant touch with our clients and helped guide them and protect their finances through these challenging times.
“I’m delighted that everything is now complete and that we are part of Chase de Vere. This allows us to continue providing top-quality independent financial advice to our clients and to grow our business in the North-East of Scotland, while still remaining very active in the local community.”
Stephen Kavanagh, chief executive, Chase de Vere, added: “I’m really pleased that Ferguson Oliver is now fully on-board as part of Chase de Vere. As a proud Scotsman, I’ve been really keen to grow our business in the North-East of Scotland and this gives us the perfect springboard.
“As a starting point we are looking to recruit more financial advisers. We have many clients from Inverness to Perth, and especially in Angus, Dundee and Aberdeen, and we need to make sure we are able to provide them with an exceptional level of client service.”
