Hannah Gillies DipPFS - DGS Chartered Financial Planners

Hannah Gillies DipPFS

About Me

Working in the healthcare industry for three years helped to develop my interpersonal and problem solving skills; I in turn recognised my passion for providing an excellent service and building client relationships. Given my long-standing interest in Finance, it therefore felt like a logical move to take on a support role in the Financial Services industry.

After working as a Client Support Administrator for another local Independent Financial Advisory firm, I joined DGS Chartered Financial Planners as a Paraplanner in May 2018. My competence and confidence has grown considerably over the time I have worked at both companies and I am now responsible for providing extensive technical, communicative and administrative support to one of our Chartered Financial Planners, Paul Savuto, in the St Albans office.

Alongside Paraplanning, I am starting to provide Financial Protection advice to individuals. I am currently studying towards my Chartered Status, having achieved the Diploma in Regulated Financial Planning in 2018, with the long term-goal of becoming a Chartered Financial Planner.
