UskVale Financial Planning, which is based on the borders of Monmouthshire and Torfaen, has recently expanded its team as a result of achieving exceptional growth within the restructured company.

The company, which has offices at Mamhilad Park Estate, specialises in providing independent financial advice with clients from south east Wales and the South West of England.

Paul Pelopida, managing director, said: “Throughout the 28 years of expanding my company business there has been a continued increase in demand for investment, savings advice and retirement planning expertise, which has resulted in the growth of our advisory and administration team to support this high demand.”

Since the restructure of the company in May 2017, it has recruited three new team members, taking the number of employees to nine.

Paul said: “One of our new highly-skilled team employee holds a masters degree in investment principles and risk management, which adds another layer of quality and experience to our operations."

UskVale Financial Planning has grown its assets under management to more than £130m, adding £20m in the past 18 months alone, an 18 per cent increase on clients' wealth being advised on at the firm.

Paul said: “Success over the last few years is unquestionably as a result of the ongoing service commitment that our team deliver to each and every one of our clients on an annual basis”

“We plan to maintain the growth of our company going forward with ongoing strategic plans already being adopted, to further develop the scope and expertise for independent financial advice delivered by our advisory team. The future certainly seems very bright here.”
