Paradigm’s absolute focus is to support the UK adviser community by offering bespoke compliance support for IFA, wealth and mortgage & protection firms, alongside providing a multi award-winning mortgage club and protection proposition.

We pride ourselves on the close working relationships we develop with the firms we support.

Paradigm

Bespoke Compliance

Paradigm Consulting was launched (as Paradigm Partners) in April 2007 with the aim of challenging the existing dynamics of adviser support within the financial services industry. Since then, Paradigm has grown to become a leading provider of support services, offering bespoke compliance and consultancy support to over 400 firms. All of our compliance packages, which start from £120+VAT per month, can be tailored to meet your firm’s specific requirements.

All of the services we offer are designed to help put you in total control and to make your business a complete success. The foundation for this is in ensuring your business is built on a solid compliance platform. Our range of regulatory support propositions help you to do just this, with our team of experienced consultants all on hand to help you understand and manage the day to day risks to your business.

We also work with carefully selected strategic partners to help add further value and opportunity, using our collective strength to make products and technology available to you at advantageous commercial rates.

MORTGAGE CLUB: REWARDing LOYALTY

In 2007, Paradigm also launched a new mortgage club, with a unique and transparent profit share scheme, alongside extensive support including a mortgage helpdesk and related services such as Equity Release, Conveyancing and Technology partners.

Fast forward to the present day and Paradigm is now firmly established and recognised as one of the UK's leading Mortgage Clubs with multiple awards to its name and with an ever growing membership (1,612 member firms as at 31st March 2021)

Our profit share scheme (50% share of all overrides) remains unique which is a huge draw by providing members with additional income. Moreover, we’ve worked hard to enhance our offering, for example via the regular addition of new Lenders to panel, recruiting new team members to ensure excellent customer service, the launch of our procuration fee portal and more. Consequently, Paradigm grew mortgage completions by a substantial 15% to £11.34bn (FY 2020/21) bucking the trend in the overall UK mortgage market which saw gross mortgage lending fall by 2% over the same period.

Protection Innovation

To demonstrate our commitment to supporting firms in writing protection business, in January 2014 Paradigm Protect was launched, aiming to offer a comprehensive Protection & General Insurance (GI) proposition. We not only wanted to support our existing member firms who were active in this space, but also help firms who wanted to start writing insurance business.

In a relatively short space of time, we are proud to have substantially widened our reach in the protection intermediary market and we now clearly stand out from the crowd in terms of the level of support that we offer to firms.

The aim of Paradigm Protect has always been to make the process of arranging protection for your clients as efficient as possible whilst not restricting your choice, and to ensure no customer detriment in the process. We are now also established as a major distributor of Protection products in the UK market, with over 800 firms benefitting from our superior proposition and commercial terms.

Paradigm

Extensive CPD Support

Paradigm have always provided intermediaries with access to educational content and CPD opportunities. In 2018, we went one step further and launched a new CPD Academy, designed to help advisers develop their sales techniques as well as reach and maintain their CPD hours under the IDD rules.

During the COVID-19 pandemic, the Academy became more important than ever, allowing advisers to easily access structured and unstructured CPD content whilst working from home. We now have over a thousand advisers registered who can access our wide range of CPD activities which cover pensions, investments, mortgages, protection, general insurance, taxation and trusts and financial planning.

In response to the requirements for advisers to be certificated as competent in order to perform their role, in September 2020 we also launched a new Test Zone on the Academy to help firms and their advisers complete their annual testing.

SUPPORTING YOU

Paradigm are also here to champion the adviser community to a wider audience. We do this in a number of ways, including via the industry press as well as our involvement in professional bodies and forums such as the Association of Mortgage Intermediaries, the Society of Mortgage Professionals and most recently, the Diversity & Inclusivity Finance Forum.
