MPA has it all…

Since MPA was established in 1988, the firm has gone from strength to strength, now having over 34 employees and 8500 clients. We are delighted to have made New Model Adviser’s Top 100 IFA firms in the UK for 2018 and we believe that this is testament to the hard work put in by our whole team every day.

What makes us top 100?

Our people and processes are the cornerstone of our ever-growing company and have been since being established over thirty years ago by Mike Paul. Everyone – whether Director, Adviser or Administrator – has their part to play and is valued for their own special contribution. We are all committed to achieving and maintaining the highest standards possible in our profession, which in turn helps us to continue to ‘Inform, Educate and Inspire’ our clients.

Our team of Advisers are both professional and approachable, with many having specific areas of expertise enabling us to offer tailored services, ranging from Final Salary Transfers led by our Managing Director Phil McGovern to Long Term Care and Inheritance Tax Planning to name a few. Ultimately, we believe that having confidence and trust is imperative when selecting a financial partner, and our team are dedicated to working with our clients to empower them to make the best possible financial decisions.

MPA continue to hold the prestigious Chartered Financial Planners title, an award presented by The Chartered Insurance Institute (CII) after successfully meeting rigorous criteria relating to professionalism and capability. This award reinforces that MPA are firmly committed to the CII’s code of Ethics and Conduct – a code which underpins the highest standard of professional practice.

MPA goes the extra mile…

MPA is also dedicated to helping others. In June 2018 we launched The MPA Charitable Foundation as our way to give back; supporting individuals and charities in the local area – an area close to MPA’s heart.

What is next for MPA?

As a company we have ambitious plans, and through carefully managed growth, our goal over the next five years is to achieve £1 billion of assets under management. With the acquisition of a 50% share in Suckling Waddington & Partners in August 2018, following the retirement of Alan Poole, contributing £120 million of funds under management and some exciting conversations already underway, the future is looking positive – something that we want to share with our clients through savings in supplier fees.

More than this, MPA’s vision is to be one of the most respected firms in the UK and we believe that with the ongoing support of our clients and suppliers this is possible.
