A highly reputable financial planning practice based in the heart of the City seeks an experienced and technically astute Paraplanner.
This firm was established several years ago and has grown to become one of the most respected independents in the area. Led by a driven management team, most of the company’s business now comes from referrals and recommendations. Offering a holistic advice service to a broad range of private clientele, the company is able to cater for a wide range of requirements, including pensions, auto-enrolment, investments, inheritance tax planning and complex final salary pension transfers.
The main purpose of the role is to provide technical and administrative support to a Partner, as well as ad hoc support to the firms’ Financial Consultants. You will also provide analysis, detailed research, report writing and product recommendations for presentations, ensuring all advice meets the strict, ethical and compliance framework. In addition, you will also be responsible for completing portfolio reviews and rebalancing requests, ensuring that all quality assessments are carried out to a high level of accuracy and professionalism.
You must be technically minded with a keen eye for detail. In addition, you must also demonstrate a strong understanding of pension and investment products, as well as having a good general knowledge of the financial market. Ideally you will already hold Level 4 Diploma qualification, though demonstrable technical competence is the most important thing. Organisational skills and the ability to manage and prioritise a diverse workload are paramount, as is the ability to manage relationships and expectations at all levels.
Salary is negotiable, being very much dependent on your experience and ‘what you have to bring to the table’, and you will also enjoy additional bonus earnings. My client is renowned for looking after its staff and rewarding high performers. Given the ongoing growth of this business, this is very exciting time to join the firm.
