Financial advice technology firm Padua Financial Group has announced its co-founder has returned to the group as its executive chairman.
In a statement yesterday, Padua said Matthew Esler has come back to build on the group’s success in advice generation.
Mr Esler was also previously co-owner of Midwinter Financial Services.
Padua managing director Anne-Marie Esler said, “We are extremely excited Matthew is returning to Padua, following the huge success we’ve been able to achieve over the past three years.
“In the past year alone, our para-planning division doubled its revenue, our transition management division managed over 600 client transitions and our technology division launched our flagship Roma Online advice request system, which is now being used by other para-planning businesses.
“These are achievements I have no doubt Matthew will expand upon.”
Mr Esler added that he is excited to be at the forefront of what Padua is doing, which includes helping advisers produce SOAs in less than 30 minutes.
“This means Padua advisers have more time to understand their clients’ needs and objectives, provide higher quality advice, have lower fees and run more efficient businesses,” he said.
