Meet… paraplanner Ebony

We believe that to help you, we need to get to know you – and vice versa. So, here’s your chance to learn a little more about the people who make up the Paraplanning Hub team.

 

Ebony has a passion for people and started working for us in early 2020 after her desire to make a difference led her to the world of finance in 2019.

 

Her passion is making effective financial recommendations that are easy for people to understand, and she describes her role as ensuring people’s financial needs are met and their money is working for them.

 

We asked her some of our most probing questions to see what makes her tick…
