deVere United Kingdom’s new East Midlands base opens this week
I’m pleased to confirm that the official opening of deVere United Kingdom’s new offices in the East Midlands will take place on Thursday 5th December, with Mayor of Mansfield, Tony Eggington doing the honours.
The move to the contemporary premises in Sherwood Oaks Business Park will provide a much larger space to cater for the team which is growing in order to meet the ongoing rise in demand from clients in the area.
deVere’s Head of the East Midlands, Mitch Hopkinson, says of the move: “The opening of deVere United Kingdom’s new offices underscores our robust commitment to this region. It highlights our client-centric focus and our overarching objective of helping clients achieve, even exceed, their financial goals, wherever they choose to live in the UK. We’re a strong global organisation with a growing local presence.”
An additional 10 financial planning advisers as well as more mortgage advisers, will be joining the deVere team in the East Midlands within the first six months of next year.
As demand for business grows, so does deVere…
We reported this year that deVere United Kingdom experienced a 162 per cent rise in activity from clients.
We put this down to three primary reasons. Firstly, more and more people are aware of the need for sound, independent financial goals if they are to protect and grow their wealth.
Secondly, the Retail Distribution Review (RDR) which was introduced earlier this year, resulted in a great number of advisers in banks, as well as independent financial advisers, abandoning the advisory market, which triggered a great upsurge in demand for deVere’s services.
And thirdly, there’s a growing number of expats returning ‘home’, as well as international investors based in the UK, seeking financial advice.
