Dickinson Dees expands wealth management team
20 Feb, 2013
Leading law firm Dickinson Dees has expanded its Wealth Management team with the appointment of Antonia Simpson.
Antonia has been appointed as a Manager in the Investment & Pensions team at Dickinson Dees’ Leeds office.
Born and educated in Richmond, North Yorkshire, she is a Founding Director of jonathanfry plc with over 20 years’ experience in wealth management working in North Yorkshire and London.
Antonia specialises in advising clients in relation to all of their financial affairs including wealth preservation, pensions and investment.
She commented: “The financial services sector faces the biggest tidal wave of change for decades with the Retail Distribution Review and impending switch in regulator from the FSA to the FCA (Financial Conduct Authority). Dickinson Dees is ready for that challenge and is unique in the breadth of wealth management services it is able to provide for its clients.”
“I am delighted to be working with a firm that is widely recognised for its high standards and trusted advice. This is also a particularly exciting time for Dickinson Dees because of the merger with Bond Pearce and the opportunities this brings. I’m very much looking forward to playing a role in the firm’s continued expansion in Yorkshire,” she added.
David Dale, head of Wealth Management at Dickinson Dees, commented: “Antonia brings an enviable blend of business experience including expertise in wealth management and compliance. Her appointment in Leeds means we have an even stronger offering to the wealth management sector and will allow us to further expand the breadth of services that we provide in Yorkshire.”
