South London-based Chartered Financial Planner joins Continuum

Plymouth (16/06/22) – Wimbledon-based Chartered Financial Planner Simon Hewitt has joined national IFA firm Continuum as the firm continues to grow.

Simon has expertise across the whole financial advice spectrum but specialises in estate planning and tax optimisation strategy.

He operates from Wimbledon in South West London as well as in North Wales due to his family connections, and in this new post-pandemic world, Simon can deal with clients across the UK using a hybrid working model.

Before becoming a Chartered Financial Planner, Simon was a commodities trader in the energy industry. His career change was prompted by the Retail Distribution Review initiative from the Financial Services Authority (now the Financial Conduct Authority) in 2012.

Simon said one of the reasons he chose to join Continuum is the firm’s commitment to long-term financial planning.

He said: “I enjoy meeting people and problem solving to help them achieve their life goals by establishing a financial plan for their whole lifetime and succession. Being able to take a long-term view is vital, and it is one of the reasons I was so keen to join the Continuum team. Their philosophy is one of long-term support for clients. I believe the key point in financial planning is mutual trust. Building on that trust to establish an ongoing relationship to track and amend my clients’ plan as their life and circumstances change has aways been a priority for me.”

Simon was also attracted to Continuum due to the national IFA’s commitment to professional service.

He said: “Continuum has always set very high standards, but even more important it is independent. It means that by working in partnership with them, I can concentrate on providing advice that really does put my clients’ interests first. It allows me to select the most suitable answers to those needs from all the providers on the market.”

“Getting the answers that people depend on to create the wealth and security they want and need is a major responsibility. Of course, at the end of the day it means better value for clients, and it means much more satisfaction for me.”

Martin Brown, managing partner at Continuum, welcomed Simon to the partnership: “Our commitment is to offer clients the very best solutions and the highest standards of support. We can only do that if we work with the very best people. Simon has demonstrated his skills and determination and a commitment which echoes our own. He shares our approach of putting clients’ needs first, whatever we do.”

The national IFA firm has also recently seen three new support staff and its first in-house recruiter join the team.
