OUTSOURCE TIME-CONSUMING TECHNICAL WORK TO PARAPLANNERS

In our current regulatory environment, it is more important than ever for advisers to undertake – and evidence – comprehensive research and suitability in all of their client recommendations. 

Ultimately, firms need to meet regulatory requirements while achieving commercial goals. Paraplanners play a key role in these efforts by enabling the delivery of high-quality advice, timely execution and operational efficiency.

Working at desk

Delegate your administrative work

Our paraplanners can complete tasks such as compiling suitability reports, performing means testing and assessing consumers’ personal circumstances, while also supporting you with recommendations for the consumer.

30 percent cost efficiencies

See your margins and quality of advice increase

Huntswood’s Level 4 qualified paraplanners have a measurable, positive impact on your business’ efficiency, delivering cost efficiencies of 30%, on average. 

We’re able to source permanent paraplanners for your in-house team or outsource / co-source paraplanning functions to trained and experienced experts. These can be deployed to your site or managed with stringent oversight in one of our Centres of Excellence.

With effective paraplanning resource at hand, you’ll surely see your margins and quality of advice increase. Going through Huntswood, you’ll also find cases completed faster and with an extremely high rate of “first time suitable” recommendations (up to 98.5% based on previous engagements).

Before using Huntswood, I had never used a paraplanner, preferring to do all the work myself. I now find I cannot do without their service.
