Christmas Team News: A very Merry Christmas to all!
As we reach the final month of 2021, we are all very grateful to have kept safe and well during this turbulent year and hope that all of our clients are able to relax and enjoy these next few weeks leading up to Christmas. We also have some exciting and bittersweet news to share with you all.
Our lovely Corinne, who has been a Senior Wealth Management Administrator at Vizion Wealth for over 4 years now, has decided to start a new life in Turkey and will therefore be leaving the company on 24th December. Corinne has contributed massively to the success of the business and has played a crucial role in our high standards of client servicing. We wish Corinne every happiness on the Mediterranean shores; she will be truly missed.
With Corinne’s departure, we would like to welcome a new member of staff, Jade Clewlow, to Vizion Wealth! Jade started in November as a part-time Wealth Management Administrator and has been undergoing detailed training sessions with Corinne. Jade is highly experienced in the Wealth Management sector and is keen to starting taking exams towards the Diploma in Regulated Financial Planning. Jade is the mother of a beautiful little lady, Amelia, and in her spare time she enjoys gliding down ski slopes!
We have also welcomed a familiar face to the company, Charlie Flowers, who has been working on a part-time basis at Vizion Wealth since September, when he’s not attending his Engineering course. Charlie, being Andrew’s son, has had much exposure to the Financial Services world and is particularly well-versed in modern history. Charlie has become a technical whiz on our CashCalc portal system and is learning how to build cash-flow forecasts for clients to assist with client meetings.
I am very pleased to share that one of our paraplanners, Sam, has recently passed his AF1 Personal Tax and Trusts Planning exam, which means he is another step towards achieving chartered status! This is a brilliant achievement for Sam and the company, as the technical expertise one can learn from this exam is invaluable and it is notoriously difficult to pass, so congratulations to him. Sam and Rachel are also looking forward to welcoming a new addition to their home in January, a puppy!
I am also delighted to share that I have recently been promoted to Business Manager & Senior Paraplanner. I have been really enjoying the new role and am excited to continue learning and developing.
Lastly, Terry has kindly collated our Vizion Wealth Winter and Christmas spotify playlists which we wanted to share with you all. The reasons we have chosen each song have been noted separately below.
Vizion Wealth would like to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
