After ‘retiring’ as an independent financial planner (IFA) in 2016 Tony Slimmings found himself working as a freelance paraplanner in 2017 ‘to fill his spare time’. By 2020 the Paraplanning Hub has five other employees.
As a chartered financial planner with nearly 30 years experience in financial services, 24 as an active financial adviser, Tony has a pretty decent idea of what is required to support financial planning practices, the whole focus of the Paraplanning Hub.
Tony Slimmings is passionate about ensuring the key people in the business, the employees, are the first priority. He then looks to instil a passion into the team to help them develop to their full potential and have the desire and passion to want to deliver an extraordinary service as standard.
Tony Slimmings now splits his time between the strategic management of the business, mentoring and developing the paraplanning team and assisting financial planners with more complex financial planning cases, such as final salary transfers and tax planning.
