He said: “We are so excited to join with A P Robinson & Co, my grandfather, Denis Blow established this firm over 50 years ago. This merger will take it into the next chapter.

“As the finance industry implements ever more streamlined systems, technological advancements and opportunities to support client business, our new organisation will be future proofed and ready to seize every opportunity.”
