What matters most
What matters most to Jon about working for Hartsfield?
The culture and the people. Almost all financial services firms are ‘people’ businesses; we are usually intrinsically linked to our clients’ financial wellbeing. Therefore, an organisation which truly puts clients at the centre of what they do, and has the right people in the right positions, is more able to help clients reach their personal goals. As a business, we really do have the ability to offer independent, unbiased advice to people; there are very few firms who can do this.
What matters most to Jon about his specific role?
I enjoy helping people look for creative strategies, particularly those with complex financial planning requirements. My qualifications and experience mean that I am equally comfortable dealing with both personal and corporate clients. As a SOLLA member, I have been independently assessed and accredited as a specialist later life adviser, which means I can help elderly clients, and their families, to make informed choices.
What matters most to Jon outside of work?
Family life is very important to me. I am married with two children and love spending quality time with family and friends, going on holidays and watching as much sport as possible (much to the annoyance of my wife!). Any spare time after that is spent in the gym or enjoying the great outdoors.
