We’re delighted to welcome James back to the Magus team – he’s decided to follow a career in Financial Planning, joining the Magus Adviser Academy, our structured career program. He’ll be working across every part of our business so he can gain lots of knowledge, experience and new skills.

 Read more about James here.

Before joining us Victoria worked at a small advising firm, near her home in Hampshire, for four years. Whilst there she held a number of roles within the business, from Administrator, to working on the Annual Review team to becoming a Paraplanner. Working in a small firm enabled her to gain a deep understanding of the various aspects of the business – but she felt she wanted to focus on developing her role within a larger firm.

Dante Peters –Â FT Top 100 Advisers


We are so proud to be placed in 71st position in the FT Adviser Top 100 Financial Adviser list.

Investors want to know that their money is being managed by the best people and this list provides a snapshot of some of the very best firms operating in the UK today.

There are a number of factors that are measured, key to investors seeking the best person to nurture and protect their finances.

The quality of a firm isn’t just about how much cash it brings in. Growth rate, number of advisers, number of years’ experience in managing assets in different economic and interest rate environments and how qualified its advisers are - are all measured, including how well clients and advisers are retained.

All in all, clients want advisers that can create a financial plan based on their personal and financial goals, they want to know they are dealing with proven professionals and that their adviser will be with them for the long term, through both the ups and downs.

At Magus, our clients are central to everything we do, we all live and breathe that value. We’re a collection of individuals who all care passionately about what we do. That’s why making it on to this list means so much to us.
