Higginson was one of six founder directors of Intrinsic and was later appointed chairman of Mint Financial Services, the national IFA Network acquired by the Intrinsic Group in 2008.
Richard Freeman, CEO of Intrinsic, says: “On behalf of the board and everyone at Intrinsic, I would like to thank George for his energy and commitment over the past 5 years. We wish him every success in the future.”
Rumours are rife that Higginson is looking to team up with former Openwork chief executive Keith Carby in a new venture.
Carby recently joined Wilmslow Wealth and is listed on the Financial Services Authority register as a director of Paradigm Financial Advisers.
