New home for Watson French

Watson French, the Truro-based independent financial planning and investment management company, has moved to larger offices to cater for future growth.

The firm has moved from the ground floor of Courtleigh House on Lemon Street to the top floor, more than doubling its floorspace and giving it ample room for expansion.

Watson French has in excess of £100 million under management, mostly for high net worth individuals, and is one of the few firms in the south west to have achieved Chartered Financial Planner status for the quality of its advice.

MD Stephen Watson said: “Courtleigh House is an excellent location for us but we simply outgrew our offices and needed more space, so when the top floor became available we jumped at the chance.

“Over the next two years we are planning to recruit five highly-qualified financial planners and more support staff, so space will be essential.”
