Mortgage and protection advice firm Just Mortgages is looking for 15 wealth advisers for its new advice division.

The firm is launching Just Wealth in January to provide wealth advice, including financial and investment advice and retirement planning.

Carl Parker, national director of the Just Mortgages self-employed division, said: “We already have thousands of clients getting expert mortgage advice and by establishing a wealth division, we can also offer them exceptional wealth management.”

Mr Parker added: “We have ambitious plans for this division, as there is a growing need and demand for good quality investment and pensions advice that sits alongside mortgage and protection recommendations.”

According to the firm, each wealth adviser will be self-employed and benefit from business development support, supervision and compliance.

Leads will be provided from Just Mortgages’ database of clients who already receive mortgage and protection advice from the firm.

Likewise, wealth advisers will be able to refer their clients to mortgage brokers within Just Mortgages.

As well as experienced wealth advisers, Just Wealth will also recruit and train mortgage advisers to become wealth advisers.

Training will be provided in partnership with Openwork which, alongside Just Wealth, will cover course fees and provide training manuals and materials.
