Wealth management firm Courtiers has set its sights on three acquisitions to take its total assets under management to £800m.
It has agreed a deal for JRH Asset Management, which has around £62m in funds under management.
And two more deals, both of which are subject to non-disclosure agreements, are also in the pipeline.

The first deal, to acquire a firm with around £20m under management, is set to be signed off in September. And the second, expected to be finalised in January next year, relates to a company with around £90m under management.
The deals have been announced at a time when wealth management mergers and acquisitions (M&A) activity is thought to be booming.
Scorpio Partnership's annual M&A assessment tracked 124 deals in 2015 – the highest figure recorded in the eight years the report has run. The figure is up from 83 in 2014 and 100 in 2013.
Jamie Shepperd, chief executive of Courtiers, told City A.M. it is a "very busy period of time" in the sector.
In the coming years, his firm is aiming to build up its assets under management to £1bn and beyond.
He said: "I think you will now start to see firms that are actually going to be the future of the wealth management industry start to take shape."
