Our Year-End results are in and there has been strong growth across the business for 2021/2022. The annual turnover has increased by 22% and exceeded £1 billion of assets under its management.
Paul Stones took on the role of Managing Director in 2021. He took responsibility for the overall performance of the company and Pareto’s growth objectives as set by the Board.
Additionally, we increased headcount by 20% to over 70 as it continues to expand its operations in line with ambitious strategic growth plans. Two new Chartered Financial Planners were welcomed, and also two members of the team progressed through our ‘Adviser Academy’ to become Financial Advisers.
The Employee Benefit team continued to expand further with the recruitment of an additional Employee Benefit consultant to add to the existing team of specialists. This reflects an increasing desire for employers to focus on recruitment, retention and employee wellbeing by seeking the right advice and having the best benefit packages in place for their staff.
Three new partnerships were secured, adding North West based Beever and Struthers, Wyatt Morris Golland Ltd and Langricks to a growing number of Chartered Accountants that trust us to provide a range of financial planning services to their clients including pensions, protection, investments and corporate planning advice.
As we continues to grow, it is important to maintain a strong culture, inspire confidence and empower change. At the end of 2021, our first Impact Report was issued, a committee-led initiative which shapes the culture and values of the business, leading by example and driving change for increased transparency. We believe this commitment delivers a positive impact on employees, communities and the environment.
Charities and community projects we’ve supported have included:
- Beechwood Cancer Care
- Manchester City of Trees
- Wood Street Mission
- Friends of Wellfield Running Track
- Gildersome Girls Under 13’s Football Team
- Curzon Ashton PAN-Disability Football Team
- Agecroft Rowing Club Youth Rowing Program
Paul Stones, Managing Director, said: “With economic uncertainty more pronounced, now more than ever, it is critical that those seeking to protect and secure their financial future can do so with the confidence that the team they work with are personal and approachable. Everyone’s circumstances are unique and at Pareto we pride ourselves on the service we provide. Our growth, while pleasing, is testament to our team’s dedication and our focus from top to bottom on the values we share with each other and our clients.“
