The deal adds £600 million to Progeny’s assets under management which recently passed £8 billion. It has 23 offices in the UK and overseas.
Carbon’s managing director Gordon Wilson said: “Combining with Progeny will help us to take our service and advice offering to new levels.”
Neil Moles, chief executive of Progeny, said: “We are highly purposeful in our approach to selecting the businesses we bring into Progeny.
“We apply a set of strict criteria, with a laser focus on high quality firms that add a great deal of value.
“Welcoming Carbon Financial Partners to Progeny will enable us to consolidate and strengthen our existing presence in Scotland and I look forward to what we can achieve together for our clients.”
