Ascentric is now part of M&G plc

Today we’re delighted to announce that, following approval from the FCA, Ascentric is now part of M&G plc.

M&G plc has bought Ascentric because of its belief in the business and commitment to the UK advisory market. And we share a culture that’s firmly grounded in meeting adviser and client needs.

We have ambitious plans to invest in the Ascentric proposition, with a significant focus on improving the adviser and client experience. And, it’s not just the technology, it’s the investment and product solutions, tools, as well as the service and support. We’ll leverage the existing capabilities and synergies across both organisations.

This investment won’t just support our business growth, it’ll provide huge opportunities for you and your clients who entrust us with their long term savings and investments.

Today, it’s business as usual. Contacts across the business remain the same and there’s no immediate change to the Ascentric or M&G propositions.
