Barnett Waddingham has announced that it has purchased Harsant Services Ltd (Harsant Pensions) for an undisclosed figure, in a deal which will see the firm add more than 400 SIPP and 70 SSAS clients to its existing book of business.
“Harsant Pensions and Barnett Waddingham have previously worked together and so this deal is very much a natural fit for us and our long-term business goals.”
