Jack joined Greenfields as a Junior Paraplanner in February 2016, having previously worked for Fitness First. The financial industry was attractive to him because it is one that is never stagnant. On a day-to-day basis even the slightest geopolitical event or change in regulation has a direct impact on the world of finance and therefore Jack himself. This ensures he is always kept on his toes.
Jack’s role is to support both the IFA and Senior Paraplanner in both the research process and production of suitability reports.
Outside of work, Jack is a huge advocate of fitness and general well-being and recently acquired his Level 2 Personal Training qualification to help him further understand a hobby about which he is extremely passionate.
