Taylor to head new Towergate Financial London EB arm

Towergate Financial, the financial advisory business of Towergate Group, today is launching an employee benefits and private client arm called Towergate Financial London.

Managing director David Taylor joins from Morgans Group where he was head of corporate benefits. Also moving from Morgans are Nick McMenemy, Gina Garman, and David Griffiths-Eyton.

Towergate Financial London says it wants to become a major force in financial services across London and the South East and plans to recruit more specialists to its team before the end of 2009.

Ian Darby, chief executive of Towergate Financial, says: “I am delighted to announce the launch of Towergate Financial London where we have recruited a first class team led by David Taylor. As part of Towergate Partnership we now have the support and firepower to grow the businesses both organically and through the acquisition of well run IFA businesses.”

Taylor says: “My team has previously won the Corporate Adviser Firm of the Year award and will strive to continually improve the client service experience at every opportunity.”
