Wealth Management Advisors – the backbone of the deVere Group
The main aim and purpose of the deVere Group is to offer its clients a global, 24/7 service which gives them the flexibility and convenience to access, manage and use their money. All this while safeguarding their long-term financial objectives, security, and wellbeing.
Always putting their clients first, the deVere Group is able to honour this commitment to its clients by employing the industry’s top financial advisors, each of whom is qualified, experienced, dedicated, committed and client-focused.
Each client is assigned a dedicated advisor who provides a personal approach and tailor-made quality advice. This advice is built on their individual circumstances, even as obligations and priorities change over time. Clients are regularly kept informed by way of reviews, update emails and more.
deVere Group financial advisors are provided with comprehensive internal mentoring and training systems, as well as continual professional development programmes.
deVere Group’s Commitments to the Greater Good
deVere Group is aware that with its size and capabilities comes an obligation to act responsibly.
To this end, the Group continually aims to protect the environment, support social progress, ensure diversity and equality, and make ethically-driven, well-governed decisions. This is shown, amongst other ways, by its commitment to fintech, which is speeding up the advance of financial inclusion.
Fintech provides access to financial services for those who live in remote or poor areas, and for those who might normally not be able to use financial services because of the biases of traditional financial firms. For example, it allows money transfers to support families in international destinations who depend upon income from elsewhere. In addition, by being paperless, there’s considerably less waste, less deforestation, and a lower carbon footprint.
“I’m incredibly passionate about helping investors achieve profits with a purpose by investing in companies that prioritise reducing carbon, protect employee and consumer rights, and promote board diversity, corporate transparency, and stakeholder accountability,” says deVere Group CEO and founder Nigel Green.
The Group is an equal opportunities employer and, as such, its employment policy recognises the diversity of communities within which it works. In 2021, deVere Group appointed Chief Operating Officer Beverley Yeomans as its first Chief Diversity Officer (CDO).
Onwards and upwards – the future of deVere Group
As well as the deVere Group being the very first international advisory company to actively develop and promote fintech, it remains the biggest and most successful fintech provider.
There is currently no other business that comes close to deVere in fintech development, innovation, and implementation. The plan is to continue to grow the Group’s suite of innovative wealth tech products and financial services.
Here’s to the next 20 years… and beyond.
