Julie Hunter, a Financial Planning Consultant joins from Galloway Whitfield (Life & Pensions) Ltd following its acquisition by Perspective Financial Group last month. Julie has over 30 years’ experience in the sector, specialising in corporate clients, and advising on pensions, business protection and employee benefits.
Jack Oakes, Trainee Paraplanner, is a graduate of Northumbria University with a degree in Business Systems & Project Management. Jack said: “I’m delighted to be embarking on a career in financial planning. Perspective’s Training Academy was a big attraction for me as it combines studying for exams with practical, on the job training and support. I am looking forward to learning and sharing experiences with the other 20 students nationally in the Academy, five of whom are in the North East.”
Rochelle Mills and Charlotte Hudson join as Administrators from the retail and telecoms sectors respectively.
Ian Wilkinson, Managing Director of Perspective Financial Group commented: “I’m delighted to welcome these new staff members. We are on a strong growth trajectory both in the region and nationally, having already made two further acquisitions this year with more to come.
“Our Training Academy is really helping us grow a pipeline of talent. Clients value continuity of their financial advisers – the average age of our advisers is 43, compared to an industry average of 57, which means our clients benefit greatly from being looked after by the same adviser throughout the relationship.”
