- Whilst New York continues to be the HQ and super hub office, client demand across the U.S. has driven the need for another hub office
- The relocation is part of a strategic expansion that will allow the firm to take on more financial advisers and support staff
- There are currently 11 of professionals in the Miami office and they are looking to at least double this number within the next 12 months
Miami is to become the second ‘hub office’ for deVere USA. The firm, part of deVere Group, has had a presence in the South Florida city since June 2011, but has now moved to larger premises in the main financial district to accommodate more advisers to meet demand.
Gareth Jones, the firm´s Area Manager in Miami, explains: “Whilst New York - which is, of course, the financial epicentre of America - remains our HQ and super hub office, skyrocketing client demand across the U.S. has driven the need for another hub office from which advisers can help our growing numbers of U.S.-based clients wherever they choose to live and work.”
He continues: “With this in mind, we have recently moved into larger premises on the prestigious Brickell Avenue, famed for having the largest concentration of international financial institutions in the U.S.
“This relocation is part of a strategic expansion that will allow us to take on more financial advisers and support staff to meet the continually increasing demand, not only in the Florida region, but in neighboring states and further beyond too.
“There are currently 11 of us in the Miami office and we are looking to at least double this number within the next 12 months.
“This operational development will allow us to further enhance deVere USA’s national position as the ‘go-to’ and most trusted advisory firm for international investors and expats.”
In 2013, as part of the “next phase of its global strategy for growth”, the firm announced it would not open pan-America offices as it had planned before, but instead would focus on a few key cities from which its consultants can serve their clients over a wider geographical area.
New York was the first ‘super hub office’, whilst Miami and San Francisco – the other deVere U.S. offices - remained more focused on their immediate surrounding areas. Now the Miami office is preparing to look further than it did previously, as it becomes more of a hub centre.
