In a recent survey by Incisive, the advisers who responded to the question “Do you use paraplanners?” answered as follows:
58% – “No I do both advising and research myself”
36% – “Yes I have internal paraplanners”
4% – “Yes I use an external paraplanner”
2% – “No I rely on high tech solutions for this”
Although there is still a long way to go to in terms of the industry recognising the importance of paraplanners, it appears that their usage is steadily increasing.
Some of the comments from advisers who do already use paraplanners were also extremely encouraging:
“A vital resource”
“Good paraplanners are worth their weight in gold”
I couldn’t have put it better myself!
