Since working in wealth management, Christina has worked as a Paraplanner where she has helped with the financial planning requirements of a broad spectrum of individuals and businesses. Until recently, Christina was Head of Propositions at a firm of independent financial planners where she developed and continually enhanced the ‘valYOU’ centralised protection and investment propositions by researching and analysing the investment, platform, and protection markets to source and implement the most innovative and effective products and solutions for both clients and the business to remain ahead of the ever-advancing nature of the industry. During her time in this role, Christina worked very closely with protection providers and wrote several articles for FT Adviser. Now, Christina is working on her own venture with her business partner to create a new and innovative way for individuals and business to access professional services.
