Oxford accountancy firm buys local rival

Ridgefield Consulting, a family-owned chartered accountancy business in Oxford, has acquired Hunter Marshall & Co after it secured funding from us. The acquisition will result in the existing business tripling in size. The combined entity is set to trade under the new name Hunter Thomas & Co at the existing offices in Botley. The acquisition, Ridgefield's third since it was established in 2010, will enable it to broaden the range of services and support that it offers to Oxford businesses. Simon Thomas, Managing Director of Hunter Thomas & Co, said: 'We look forward to working closely with the team at Santander Corporate & Commercial and Hunter Marshall & Co as we broaden the range of services we offer to the local business community.'
