McHardy & Borland Group, which comprises McHardy Financial (Independent Financial Advisors), and Borland Insurance (Insurance Brokers), has recently opened a new office in Rutland Square in Edinburgh city centre, as part of its continued expansion.

The two-storey 1500 sq ft office building, which is located in the heart of the financial district of Edinburgh, has been recently refurbished and will initially accommodate 12 employees. The group, which has specialised in corporate and private financial and insurance advice since 1987, expects to create a number of employment opportunities later in the year, as business growth continues.

Chief executive of McHardy Financial, Ross Smith, said: “Borland & McHardy have worked together effectively to offer valued financial and insurance solutions to their clients and expand the business across Scotland. Opening a new office in the heart of Edinburgh is essential in our long-term growth plans and will enable us to accelerate further growth. The expansion marks a significant point in the group’s growth, whilst also strengthening our presence in the Central Belt and creating further employment opportunities.”

Chief executive of Borland Insurance, John Silcock said: “In the past couple of years, we have continued to grow with key appointments and strategic acquisitions to expand the group’s presence in Scotland. Working as a group, we can provide our clients with greater cohesiveness and a comprehensive range of services to meet all of their financial and insurance needs. The additional offices and resources shows our commitment and cements our position as one of Scotland’s leading independent financial and insurance services providers.”
