First class honours graduate Charlotte Walker is the latest addition to the team.
She joined as a trainee technical adviser, focusing on research and analysis for new and existing clients.
She recently graduated from Manchester Metropolitan University with a first class honours degree in accounting and finance.
Ms Walker said: “I am excited to work with Smart Financial because of their unique view on how clients’ money should be managed to meet not only financial goals but also utilised to achieve any personal aspirations.”
In addition to her professional goals, she plans to complete a ‘Tough Mudder’ and half marathon during the coming year.
The firm has a track record of hiring graduates to trainee positions.
Smart Financial’s third graduate, Ashley Burrows-Brown, joined the business a year ago as a future planner.
The firm says the graduates complete a three-year programme, learning “many aspects of the business, in addition to completing professional exams with the CII.”
Smart Financial chief executive, Steve Martin, said: “I am proud of our commitment to graduate development.”
