An Inverness financial planning firm is expanding with the appointment of a new director.

Jill Paton-Mackenzie, who was born and bred in Inverness, has joined 57 North Financial Planning, which is based at the Green House in the city.

A Robert Gordon University graduate in management with a BA Honours degree, Jill left a national IFA business as a client delivery manager to take up the post where she will advise clients on retirement and investment/pension planning as well as inheritance tax planning.

Jill says: “Having members of my family involved in the financial planning profession has meant that it is something that has been part of my life for as long as I can remember. I started gaining direct experience when I was seventeen and from there, I knew it was the career I wanted to follow for myself.

"While at university I was determined to continue working within the family business and this was mainly within the operations and finance side of the business as this could be done remotely, I could therefore continue to gain experience whilst still studying. "Latterly, I was a client delivery manager and whilst I gained a lot of experience from this job, I am now extremely proud and excited to work again for a local firm that has a strong sense of community not only in Inverness but the wider Highlands, Islands and Moray area.

"Having obtained my qualifications and with my regulatory applications pending with the relevant bodies within the profession, I am now focused on combining the qualifications and experience I have gained over the last ten years to assist the team and help grow 57 North Financial Planning as a financial planner and director."

Dan Murdoch, a director at 57 North commented: “We are delighted to welcome Jill to the team. Our team approach is something that we are proud to have embedded from day one. We have a wealth of experience from providing a high level of financial planning to clients over the years, and we are delighted that we can continue to offer this service in a local setting.

"We understand that everyone has differing circumstances and situations. We pride ourselves in taking time to get to know our clients, their families and their particular situation to ensure we can help achieve their goals and objectives.

"This enables us to deliver a tailored financial plan to each client. We appreciate that for some, dealing with finances can be daunting.

"However we are committed to help make each individual’s financial planning journey as smooth as possible and as a team we are more than happy to collaborate with other professionals such as lawyers and accountants, on behalf of our clients.”

Jill added: “I am really excited about the journey that lies ahead and I am looking forward to being part of a team that is able to offer individuals, families and business owners within the Highlands and Moray a local, trustworthy and bespoke financial planning service”.
