Welcome to Hoskin Financial Planning

The year 2012 has seen the Queens Diamond Jubilee, the Olympics in London and the European 2012 Football competition.

This year is also a significant year for the financial services industry with the Retail Distribution Review (RDR).  A significant element of RDR has been the requirement for Financial Advisers to obtain a higher level of qualifications by the end of 2012. Many high street banks have withdrawn their customer facing financial advisers and others have reduced their number of advisers.

Now in Maldon in Essex, Hoskin Financial Planning has been launched covering Maldon, Essex and the rest of England.  Hoskin Financial Planning is a modern, vibrant, forward thinking business providing wholly independent, expert and friendly financial advice in an easy to understand manner to business and personal clients.

The founder, Paul Hoskin, has 25 years’ experience in Financial Services at adviser and managerial level.  He holds the Diploma for Financial Advisers (DipFA) which meets the higher qualification standard required by the Financial Services Authority (FSA) to be able to continue advising clients beyond 2012.  He is a lecturer at Colchester Institute; where he developed a training program and taught local Independent Financial Advisers the higher level qualification.

As Financial Planners, Hoskin Financial Planning offers a modern holistic approach to financial planning built on long term relationships with our clients.  The nature of this type of planning will ultimately include all aspects of your financial life from your mortgage to retirement planning (pensions) and wealth management (Investments); from protecting your family’s finances against your premature death (family protection), to ensuring your estate is distributed according to your wishes (Estate planning and Wills).

Our preferred approach to Financial Planning is a face to face meeting as we believe in getting to know our clients and building long term relationships so that we are able to advise appropriately and effectively informing you of your choices and helping you decide.

We must apologise for our first attempt at a blog but we had to start somewhere.  In time, our blog writing will include personal, business and industry wide subjects with hopefully a touch of humour and personality!
