Joining a Reputable and Well Supported Team

Holborn Assets UK reputation for customer care and integrity is second to none in the financial industry. To maintain this privileged position we seek strong candidates to join Holborn Assets UK as financial advisers. You will need to demonstrate a successful track record of at least 5 years in the industry and, above all, the highest levels of integrity in order to meet our standards. We recruit from all over the UK.

Though working independently, our advisers enjoy an unrivaled level of support and guidance in all parts of the financial advisory process, from administration and paraplanning to marketing and client relationship management. Holborn Assets UK has experts in all fields ready to help you grow and maintain a successful financial planning career.

The group is based on the UK’s network systems model, but provides additional resources to advisers, such as sponsorship, office, accommodation and financial support to establish a successful business (if required and separately negotiated against plan).

How We Work with Our Clients

As a company we help our clients to ‘Put the right money in the right place at the right time’.

We have developed a strict in-house regulated system of procedures designed to identify client’s needs and prepare a bespoke financial plan, in order to help all our clients achieve their diverse financial and life goals. Clients’ circumstances and objectives are typically discussed over two or three meetings, where the adviser gradually develops the most suitable solution.

To solve clients’ genuine financial problems, we always provide unbiased advise based on the latest research and facts, rather than marketing hype, and bring innovative solutions which may involve tools such as writing a will, establishing a trust or an offshore company, or opening an offshore bank account. We can also advise on foreign and UK pensions or set up international private pension plans.

Taking advantage of the group’s long time expertise, our advisers are able to add immense value to clients and help them make sure their wealth is effectively protected and in the best position to grow in the world of fast changing global economic, political and legal environment. Working for Holborn Assets UK means being part of a team that shares a desire to serve customers with the best possible care.
