Progeny taking Yorkshire expertise to capital

Wealth manager Progeny Group is speeding ahead with its expansion into the South by joining forces with Quadrant​ ​Group, a London-based wealth management firm serving private and corporate clients.

Leeds-based Progeny​ ​is supporting the management buyout of Quadrant​, ​whose team will now join Progeny.

Neil Moles,​ ​managing​ ​director of Progeny Group, said that the group’s expansion into the South is an indication of how it is exporting Yorkshire expertise to the capital.

“The North has a number of advantages,” he said, “We have fantastic people and amazing universities. If you go to Leeds University or Manchester University you tend to stay there.

“There is a belief that if you don’t work in the M25 you’re not that good.

“We are challenging that. We have amazing people here in Leeds.”

Progeny said it is looking to hire and it is actively seeking more strategic acquisitions.
