EXPANSION is being undertaken across the board at a York wealth management firm with growth in office space and staff numbers.

HGH Wealth Management Independent Financial Advisers has expanded by adding a new member to the team and moving into the renovated ground floor of Hunter Gee Holroyd’s York office in Museum Street.

The internal promotion of Sharon Ward to the role of Trainee Paraplanner opened up a role for a Financial Services Administrator, to which Sarah Coldwell has been appointed.

Both roles will help to service the increasing demand for investment, pensions, retirement planning and independent financial advice offered by the company.

Sarah Coldwell has more than 5 years experience within the financial services sector and will be responsible for organising the free initial consultations offered by independent financial adviser Nick Lawson.

Sharon Ward joined HGH Wealth Management in 2003 and has completed structured on the job training, ThreeSixty Training Events and exam success in the CII Level 3 Award in Financial Administration to help her to progress to her new role. She will be working closely with the firm’s professional partners and advisers.

The ground floor space at Club Chambers has been recently renovated by HGH Wealth Management’s sister company Hunter Gee Holroyd to accommodate the growing need for independent financial advice and payroll services within York and North Yorkshire.

New signage promoting both HGH Wealth Management and Xero Cloud Accounting Services has been added by two York companies; Fusion Design and M4 UK signs. A Digital Media Screen has also been installed which features a testimonial from The Balloon Tree Farmshop and Café at Stamford Bridge, produced by Seven Video productions.
