Independent Financial Adviser Careers Kent
Facts & Figures has vacancies for self employed financial advisers. We offer ongoing training and development coupled with an exciting, motivating and challenging environment. Here’s what our advisers say about us
Facts & Figures is an established brand that has been active in Kent for 25 years. Our strap line:
“make smarter financial moves..”
has also gained enviable traction.
We are a firm of independent financial advisers and mortgage brokers providing instant RDR compliance and an unassailable marketing proposition. We are also a SIFA member (Solicitors’ Independent Financial Advice) providing a strong entree into the legal profession. We have a demonstrable commitment to integrity & client service. We sailed through our Treating Customers Fairly inspection from the FSA.
The business is owned and run by husband and wife team Simon & Pam Webster. Simon is former chief executive of both Berkeley Independent Advisers network and Berry Birch & Noble Advisers. Simon is the business’ compliance director and a strong believer in commercially appropriate compliance rather than mere box ticking for the sake of it.
Pam is a chartered financial planner.
The business uses Iress Software’s Adviser Office Professional to run its back office, sitting on the latest servers and running the very latest operating systems – Facts & Figures is a Microsoft partner. We conduct our fund research using Analytics, which we believe to be the best research system available to IFA’s in the UK. This commitment to state of the art technology ensures that Facts & Figures’ advisers can build their businesses on a firm foundation.
Facts & Figures has serious corporate expertise and runs the employee benefits of a number of national employers; My Ferry Link (formerly SeaFrance) being our highest profile client to date. We also have a written investment proposition, an investment committee that meets monthly and strong expertise in the mortgage market. We are licensed to advise on pension transfers in house.
