Chesterfield-based Start Financial Planning has expanded its team further with the appointment of Nick Evans.
Nick (28) from Hasland, joins the independent financial advice firm as a trainee financial advisor. He makes the move to the financial services industry from a career in training and, prior to that, banking where he worked for a high street building society for six years.
Nick’s appointment plays a key part in the firm’s ambitious growth plans. He is currently undertaking financial advisor qualifications and expects to qualify in October later this year.
He commented: “I am loving the challenge that my career change has brought. While I have experience of working in a financial environment, I am now learning about and dealing with a vast array of financial products in order to deliver truly independent financial advice.”
Outside work, Nick plays guitar with a few local bands and last year played with the indie folk duo The Natterjacks at Derbyshire’s Y Not Festival.
Start Financial Planning was established last year by Steve Taylor and Michael Heath. Working closely with firms within Chesterfield’s professional services sector, Start has brought a new approach to the world of financial planning.
Welcoming Nick to Start, Steve said: “We’re delighted to have Nick on board. His appointment embodies our approach to doing things differently from other financial advisers. We want to develop team from the ground up, training them in all aspects of the business so that they have full knowledge of products, markets and our clients. This, we believe, delivers a far superior service.”
Delivering a full financial planning service to individuals and businesses nationwide, Start’s services are in high demand from small business owners who are keen to maximise their pension contributions.
As well as pensions and exit strategies, Start Financial Planning also specialise in tax planning, estate planning, investments, business and personal protection.
