Despite a tough market the Plymouth-based firm says it has seen 25% growth in business volumes in the first 4 months of this year.
The company has recruited Philip Dragoumis, Brendan Sheehan, John Humphries and Richard Higgs to expand in central London, the Home Counties and South West. The move takes its adviser / planner numbers to 50.
Martin Brown, managing partner at Continuum - which employs a number of Chartered Financial Planners, said: “The appointment of Brendan, Richard, Philip and John brings a wealth of experience to the team.
“They will further expand our business as we look to continue our strong growth pattern in 2020, which is being driven through the unprecedented demand for advice and guidance we have experienced over the last few months.”
Because of the lockdown the company has launched its Staying Connected Hub. This offers clients access to an adviser booking facility, virtual live chat discussions, financial education and a well-being programme.
Martin Brown added: “The increased demand for new guidance and enquiries over the last few months, and in particular the unprecedented levels since the outbreak of Covid-19 prompted us to enable and fulfil this need.
“Remote based client contact and advice could be seen as the new normal for a while to come and as such we are well positioned to support our clients and our adviser community.”
Continuum became directly authorised In November 2018 after leaving the Caerus Network. Since leaving Caerus adviser numbers have increased from 36 to 50. Assets under influence have increased to over £950m, the company says.
