Financial planning firm adds new recruit

Nick Evans

Chesterfield-based Start Financial Planning has expanded its team further with the appointment of Nick Evans.

Evans 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.

He is currently undertaking financial advisor qualifications and expects to qualify in October later this year.

He said: “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”.

Start Financial Planning was established last year by Steve Taylor and Michael Heath.

Taylor 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”.
