Consilium Chartered Accountants recently provided corporate finance and tax advisory services to Campbell Thomson Insurance Services Limited, in respect of the disposal of the business to Verso Wealth Management, a Cairngorm Capital portfolio company.
Alongside legal advisors, Macdonald Henderson, the Consilium team worked with Campbell Thomson’s shareholders to facilitate the deal. The acquisition by Verso sees the wealth management group make their first move into the Scottish insurance market.
“We would be delighted to recommend the Consilium team to anyone in a similar position”
Euan Bottomley, Director of Campbell Thomson said: “The directors of Campbell Thomson are delighted with the sale of the business to Verso Wealth. The support, excellent advice and counsel provided by John Blair and the Consilium team helped smooth the process throughout.”
He continued: “In the modern climate it is difficult to find a company with the same professional values, understanding and can-do approach but Consilium are definitely a firm who demonstrate these high standards time and time again.”
“We would be delighted to recommend the Consilium team to anyone in a similar position”, he concluded.
Helping valued clients achieve their goals
Established in 1978, Campbell Thomson provides specialist financial planning and advice to businesses and individuals in the UK. Main shareholders Stewart Thomson and Euan Bottomley will continue within the firm post-deal as Verso expands its market presence in Scotland.
Describing the relationship between Campbell Thomson and Consilium Chartered Accountants, Euan remarked: “Having worked with the Consilium Partner team for almost 44 years from our establishment back in 1978, we have only ever experienced a level of support and professional guidance that makes it a pleasure to work with everyone in the team.”
Consilium Chartered Accountants have provided a full range of compliance and business advisory services to the second-generation shareholders of Campbell Thomson since 2013. We are delighted to have supported the disposal of the business to Verso.
