Paradigm appoints Mike Allison
His responsibilities include developing Paradigm’s existing protection proposition as well as supporting firms’ existing needs, particularly in areas such as compliance services.
Previously Allison was at Paradigm Mortgage Services’ sister firm, Paradigm Financial Advisers where he joined in January 2010. Prior to this he was the managing director at Personal Touch Financial Services.
Bob Hunt, chief executive of Paradigm, said: “We are pleased to welcome an individual of Mike’s experience and skills to the Paradigm Mortgage Services team. Our membership levels and positive resultant business growth continues to buck trends in this continuingly difficult market.
“At Paradigm we are always looking at the key areas where firms require support and Mike’s knowledge in supporting new and existing members’ compliance needs along with a focus on developing our already strong protection proposition should prove very popular.”
Allison, added: “I am delighted to be working at Paradigm Mortgage Services helping develop further this proposition for directly authorised firms. Since joining Paradigm Group I have been impressed both with their vision of the future and the infrastructure in place to support the services they provide to members.
“Paradigm Mortgage Services has grown, in a short space of time, to be one of the UK’s major distributors and I am looking forward to working with our partner firms in order to help them maximise their business value and volume. The whole Paradigm ethos is one that has the adviser as its focus and I am excited to be part of the next stage of its growth.”
