Eclipse: Full coverage from the last week.

It feels like we’re moving on to yet another phase of the Covid journey of fun we’ve all had the pleasure of experiencing so far in 2020; the immediate crisis is moving behind us*, and we’re now staring into an abyss of challenges and struggles as we deal with the aftermath. Markets bouncing around quite […]


The thinking behind Project 2030

You may have heard we have been working on a little something called #Project2030. When the world went into lockdown, we knew we had to start looking at our services across The Verve Group differently, ensuring that they are fully future-proofed for our clients. And so, #Project2030 was born and the outcome saw the launch […]

Paraplanner Team of the Year

To say the last few weeks have been busy would be somewhat of an understatement. With the launch of our #Project2030 and the brand-new services that came along with it, our feet have barely touched the floor.

At Para-Sols and The Verve Group as a whole, we’re fortunate […]

This has not only had a major impact on everyday living, but it has also had a massive effect on the financial markets and you, as an adviser, when servicing your clients. Why should I […]


Periodic Suitability Reviews

MiFID II has been in force for over two years and still, we find there is a lot of debate as to how best to approach Periodic Suitability Reviews.
