At Acumen, we are always looking to grow our team, expand our collective knowledge base and provide our clients with the most comprehensive financial advice possible. This can only be achieved by bringing new talent on board. As such, Acumen is proud to introduce our first apprentice, Daniel Frampton.
Home grown Acumen advisers
As our first apprentice, Daniel will work closely with our qualified IFAs to learn the ropes of financial advice and, more importantly, the high standard of financial advice provided by Acumen. Our ‘home grown’ advisers are something we are very proud of at Acumen. We take a young mind and through hands on training and shape them into an exceptional financial adviser.
“Acumen has given me the unique opportunity of a newly established apprenticeship scheme set up by the CII” says Daniel. “I am very motivated to follow in the footsteps of the three “home grown” advisers we have here at Acumen. I am looking forward to seeing where this exciting career opportunity will take me.”
A promising young talent
Daniel’s journey will begin alongside Acumen Director, Jon Landy, to learn about and specialise in protection policies. From here, we have established a five-year plan to take Daniel through his exams and well on his way to becoming a full Chartered Financial Planner.
“We believe in investing in young talent and saw an opportunity with Daniel to recruit someone with real potential and a willingness to learn,” says Jon Landy.
Daniel successfully embarked on the selection process to become a Royal Marines Officer. However, after deciding this wasn’t the correct path for him, he moved into working as a Medical Receptionist within the NHS. When the opportunity at Acumen came up, Daniel jumped at the chance to begin a career within the financial sector. In his spare time, Daniel will also continue with his impressive, national record-breaking powerlifting career.
Welcome to Acumen, Daniel.
