Smith Cooper Independent Financial Services (SCIFS) has onboarded Mufaddal Travadi as a chartered financial planner.
Travadi joins SCIFS from Hargreaves Lansdown, where he has spent over eight years as a financial advisor, “providing clients with strategic financial advice that adds long term value”.
His experience includes time at Skipton Financial Services and Santander and is “well regarded in the field”.
Richard Garside, MD at SCIS, said: “We’re really delighted to be welcoming Mufaddal to the team. He brings a wealth of knowledge with him, and the breadth of his experience will add enormous value to our practice and our clients.
“The challenges of the last 12 months have encouraged many businesses and high net worth individuals to review their wealth strategies, with Covid-19 acting as a catalyst and fuelling the need to protect, preserve and generate wealth.
Travadi added: “I have been a financial planner for the last 15 years, of which the last 8 have been spent with the FTSE 100 company Hargreaves Lansdown. I became a Financial Adviser in order to make a material difference to people’s financial situations.
“For this reason, I look forward to working with clients in an independent nature and having total confidence that we can find the correct solution for them, to help them attain their longer-term hopes and dreams.”
SCIS offers bespoke wealth management services exclusively to corporate and private UK high net worth clients, including inheritance tax and estate planning, investment advice, retirement planning and corporate planning.
