Verso Wealth Management has appointed a former banker as chief executive as it seeks acquisitions in a rapidly consolidating independent financial adviser market.
The Sussex-based group, with assets of more than £1.8bn, has hired Alan Mathewson to lead the business and oversee the integration of the five financial services firms it bought last year.
The appointment comes as Verso prepares for further consolidation in the UK’s fragmented advisory sector and as smaller firms come under strain from the cost of complying with new rules. The industry faces significant regulatory changes in July when the Financial Conduct Authority’s consumer duty rules come into force, which the watchdog said will cause “a major shift” in financial services.
Graham Coxell, chair of Verso, said: “Growth will come very much from acquisitions. We’ve been very successful in acquiring five business over the past 18 months, and we are continuing to look for attractive acquisition opportunities.”
He said the opportunity for acquisitions “is significant”, noting that there “will continue to be consolidation” in the IFA market.
Coxell said the group’s deals to date have been IFA firms overseeing more than £350mn. “Going forward, we will maybe acquire slightly bigger [businesses] north of £500mn” he said. Verso could also acquire teams of IFAs from other firms, he added.
Mathewson was previously a senior adviser to private equity firm Bridgepoint. Prior to this, he was chief executive of UK wealth manager Brown Shipley. He also worked for two decades at Santander, running its UK wealth management and private banking division among other roles.
Verso, which is backed by private equity firm Cairngorm Capital, has grown its assets from a few hundred million less than two years ago through a series of deals. Verso’s rapid growth reflects a broader trend among private equity firms seeking to expand in the UK’s wealth management industry.
Many IFA firms are reassessing their business models and their charging structures because the new rules are expected to drive up costs. The FCA said in January that some firms were still behind in planning for the consumer duty rules, aimed at ensuring customers are treated fairly by financial services firms.
Verso is aiming to build a national wealth management group, with IFAs for financial planning situations that require face-to-face advice and digital services for more straightforward services.
The company’s executive restructuring is aimed at preparing Verso for embedding the acquisitions as well as future deals. Verso’s co-founder Andrew Fay will step down from the chief executive role but will remain on the board.
“As we grow, I need to make sure we have the right people in the team to manage the growth effectively,” said Coxell. “From a regulatory perspective, it is critical we can demonstrate the appropriate skillset and oversight . . . I do expect to further strengthen the team.”
GRAND FORKS — Alerus Financial Corporation ended 2021 on high note by posting a record level of income.
According to a Jan. 26 release, Alerus reported a net income of $52.7 million last year, topping the company’s previous record of $44.7 million in 2020. The company saw growth throughout its business sections, though mortgages fared particularly well due to an unanticipated surge in people wanting to refinance.
President and CEO Katie Lorenson, who assumed those positions on Jan. 1, attributed the performance to the bank’s team members, as well as the company’s advice-based approach and diversified business model. The company offers a full line of banking services, as well as retirement and benefits, wealth management and mortgage services.
“Alerus continues to be a purpose-driven company, focused on its business model, strategy and culture,” Lorenson said. “Our talented Alerus team members executed at exceptional levels, resulting in a strong finish to the fourth quarter and another record setting year for Alerus with annual net income of $52.7 million.”
Mortgage originations in the fourth quarter of 2021 came in at $356.8 million, a 14.2% decrease from the third quarter. Totals for the year, however, set a new milestone for the company at $1.8 billion.
The second rollout of the federal Paycheck Protection Program in early January 2021 also provided a boost to the company. Alerus strengthened its U.S. Small Business Administration lending experience, through the use of a five-person team based in the Twin Cities. The company helped clients secure nearly 2,500 PPP loans totaling $474 million. More than 90% of those loans have been forgiven by the SBA.
The company is also continuing to pursue its acquisition strategy and expand its footprint. In early December, Alerus announced its intent to acquire MPB BHC, Inc. and its wholly-owned banking subsidiary, Metro Phoenix Bank. Work on the acquisition is ongoing. In 2020, the company acquired Retirement Planning Services Inc., in Colorado.
“Assuming the consummation of the transactions, this will be our 25th acquisition since 2000,” Lorenson said.
With Lorenson having taken over as president and CEO, the company has also announced two promotions to its executive team. Alan “Al” Villalon has been named chief financial officer and executive vice president of the company. The positions were previously held by Lorenson. Also, Jerrod Hanson has been named chief accounting officer and senior vice president.
Villalon is a strategic finance executive with more than 25 years of experience in financial services. He most recently served as deputy director of investor relations and senior vice president at U.S. Bank. Prior to U.S. Bank, he spent most of his career in equity analyst research roles, including serving as a senior research analyst at Thrivent Asset Management.
Hanson previously served as controller at Alerus for the past two decades. In his new role, he will be responsible for the direction and oversight of all corporate accounting functions and staff, including corporate accounting, Securities and Exchange Commission and other financial reporting, corporate tax, share-based compensation and other financial reporting matters.
Louise Hill, co-founder & COO of the children’s financial education app, GoHenry, recently sat down with Finextra to discuss developing financial resilience at a young age and their latest acquisition.
GoHenry offers Money Missions, which are financial lessons targeted to children of different ages, ranging from 6-10, 10-14, and 14+. The app covers the national financial education curriculum in the US and UK respectively, and offers gamified missions, quizzes, and lessons for children to gain essential monetary skills.
Kids are awarded certificates and badges on various courses within the app, and Hill adds that “elements are triggered by behaviour. Let's say a child went to look at their savings goal, that might trigger something about how saving for something long term works, the value of waiting, and saving up before you buy something rather than flushing money away. It is designed to build financial resilience and teach kids to feel empowered with money.”
Hill comments on how Gen Z and the younger generation today are digital natives, stating that there has been a major shift in children's shopping habits to digital and card payments. She emphasises that only 14% of kids choose to spend in cash.
The founding principle of the company was that there was nothing in society that could help teach children about how to be good with money. The latest challenges around how to keep on top of consolidated debt, the emergence of numerous Buy Now Pay Later (BNPL) providers, and the rising cost of living, has made it even more essential for young people to become confident with how they manage their money than ever.
Recently, GoHenry announced its acquisition by American saving and investing app, Acorns. On the transition, Hill speaks on the alignment of goals and values at both companies:
“Their mission was very clearly defined as financial wellness for what they call the ‘everyday American.’ So, not sophisticated investors, but encouraging everyday people to start investing early in a small, non-invasive way. It's simple and easy to understand what to build from an acorn-they use the phrase ‘to a mighty oak.’ Members can build their savings with compound interest they invest for the future. Education is fundamentally built into the services that they provide; we are the same.”
One in five 10-12 year olds are using GoHenry in the UK. Merged with Acorns, GoHenry has over 6 million customers in both the US and UK. In Europe, GoHenry is expanding with the company acquired in 2022, Pixapay, that operates in France, Spain, and Italy.
On assisting young adults and over 18 year olds, Hill expresses hurry interest in furthering that goal to expand their services for people of all ages. “Last week I used the phrase: from 6 to 106!” Hill jokes.
Recently, Finextra covered an event at Parliament held by the Centre of Financial Capability of which Hill is a trustee. On the Government’s role in the financial education front Hill remarks:
“If the government's prepared to get behind the aim for every child in the UK to have a financial education by 2030, and they are prepared to release dormant assets, I think it's very achievable. The difference that can make to not only individuals, but society, runs through everything. From businesses being run better, more businesses being started, more money in the economy, more people being employed, more people having pensions, to savings being more resilient. It touches everything.”
Five small businesses have secured positions on a $947 million contract to provide life cycle acquisition management, strategic financial and business management support services to the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency.
Credence Dynamo Solutions, Compass, Exacta Solutions, Innovate Now and Logic Gate will compete for eight individual task orders under the five-year, indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract, NGA said Thursday.
Task orders will cover acquisition planning, data management, technology insertion recommendations and information assurance services; cost estimation development, audit, budgeting and equipment and purchasing assistance; and business process analysis, communications, foreign military sales, security and workforce management.
In a presolicitation notice, NGA said the Clover procurement effort is a follow-on to the $849 million Emerald contract awarded to six small businesses in September 2016.
