“Transparency and independence are vital for retirement planning. Continuum ensures I can deliver them – and better outcomes for clients”.
Award-winning financial advisory firm Continuum is welcoming a new Financial Adviser to its team.
Andreas Vazanias is based in St Albans and will be building on an impressive record as an independent adviser.
“Most of my clients are local to me in Hertfordshire but I also cover Bedfordshire, Essex and London.”
Andreas has been helping provide cutting edge financial solutions since 2012. He developed a specialist knowledge of Investments and Inheritance Tax planning.
Since then he has broadened his skills, achieving DipPFS accreditation. This has allowed him to work as an Independent Financial Adviser supporting and guiding individuals and their families through life’s financial challenges.
Andreas has a particular focus on providing financial solutions for those in – or heading for – retirement. This has allowed him to build expertise in retirement planning and post-retirement income provision and also savings and investments. He provides solutions in IHT mitigation, estate planning, tax planning and business protection, creating bespoke plans to help clients achieve their long-term financial goals.
“My focus is to help clients with retirement planning, both in the lead up to retirement and post-retirement. Naturally, this involves tax planning, and particularly Inheritance Tax Planning. I believe in providing a full 360 degree financial service, so I also develop solutions to help clients protect their wealth should the unexpected happen.
“I am really passionate about providing a first-class service to both existing and new clients by being friendly, honest and keeping things simple and straightforward.”
Andreas is looking forward to helping both old and new clients find better answers to their long term financial challenges. He sees the move to Continuum as an important step in his career.
“I was keen to join Continuum for a number of reasons – one of the most important was that it will help me to do more for my clients.”
“I’m very excited to be part of the Continuum family. Very shortly after the introduction to Continuum, I realised this is where my existing and future clients can benefit the most.
There is a togetherness within the business, a friendly culture and willingness to help. In this fast-paced and ever-changing world we live in, this support structure and the wealth of resources will allow me to provide the best service possible to clients and help them to achieve those long-term dreams.”
Andreas explains that the advantages of working within Continuum include having administrative and compliance teams to take care of the routine details, giving him more time to spend on building and maintaining relationships with clients. He is also very positive about the Online portal, Brand Loyalty Programme, and the stream of financial updates and education material, which he feels help his clients start conversations and understand the possibilities.
There is also the fact that Continuum is independent. Working with Continuum allows Andreas to call on the very latest products from across the industry.
“I can give honest advice and focus on the products and services that mean the best outcome for clients. That’s obviously better for clients – its also more professionally satisfying for me.”
Continuum’s Managing Partner Martin Brown is keen to welcome Andreas. “Being truly independent enables us to offer solutions from the entire market, with the best interests of our clients, and the integrity of our advisors, at the heart of what we do.
Andreas will help us deliver our high standards. Along with his personal integrity and his determination to provide the most suitable outcomes for clients he brings valuable expert knowledge of the financial challenges our clients face when planning retirement. We know that making the right decisions for retirement and beyond is easier with expert support. Andreas can provide the quality of support our clients deserve and need.
