New hire for Nottingham’s George Square Financial Management

George Square Financial Management has added a new adviser to its growing team in Nottingham city centre, reflecting the firm’s growth in new instructions for financial planning advice.

Simon Hill has joined George Square from Succession Group.

The appointment marks the beginning of a planned programme of succession and growth for George Square Financial Management and reflects a significant increase in pensions work.

Managing Director George Goward said: “Greater pension freedoms that were introduced in April 2015 have led more people to seek professional, independent financial advice about how best to plan for their retirement and the future. Our specialist expertise in pension planning advice has allowed us to significantly grow this complex area of work and I am delighted that we have been able to recruit Simon to our talented team of advisers to enable this growth to continue.”

Simon Hill has spent the last 16 years in financial services, initially as a mortgage and protection adviser and qualifying as a financial adviser in 2008. Simon will continue to provide independent advice on mortgages, mortgage protection and financial planning, including investments, pensions and retirement planning to our established and expanding roster of clients.

On his appointment, Simon commented:“I am thrilled to have joined George Square Financial Management at such an exciting time and am looking forward to being part of the team as it continues to grow. The firm’s friendly, yet professional approach to the provision of independent financial advice is what attracted me to George Square and I am keen to start working with its valued clients and furthering my career as an IFA.”
