We’re super excited to announce our very first paraplanner has been awarded certification to The Paraplanner Standard™!
Reece Edwards of Nottingham-based Hampshire Hill Group has achieved Certified International Professional Paraplanner™ (CIPP) status and we couldn’t be more proud!
In Reece’s own words:
‘Being the first paraplanner to be certified is a huge honour and an achievement I am very proud of. On a personal level, it has given me, as a Paraplanner, something to work towards each year in order to continue to improve. This is something I have felt has been missing within the Paraplanning community for some time. As time goes on, I feel like Paraplanners are going to become more and more important within financial services and would love to see more and more employers give their support to their paraplanners, as Hampshire Hill has done for me. In all honesty, the assessment itself with Michelle and Andrew was an enjoyable experience and the feedback given was constructive and helpful. Working within a firm with BS8577 and with 4 investment advisers with ISO 22222 gave me a huge “leg-up” in terms having processes in place in order to achieve the standard but the support I have been given from the firm has been invaluable and now I look forward to progressing and improving through my long (very long!) career.’
