Jelf commented: “Building client trust and fostering long-term relationships with my clients has always been a priority for me. I am passionate about this and consider my partnership approach to working with clients a key differentiator.”

In light of growing evidence that high-quality financial advice is especially sought during periods of increased market volatility, Jelf explained: “I have been hearing loud and clear that people need a financial planning business that not only exhibits the highest standards of ethics and professionalism, but also delivers high quality advice they can truly value and trust. It therefore gives me great pleasure to see the momentum that has already been created around Integrity365, and experience the shared passion and drive for trusted partnerships – with clients, colleagues and aligned businesses – that has formed the cornerstones of this new and refreshingly client-centric business.”

In a statement from Integrity365, the company outlined its ambitions for the future, with “clear ambitions for new business growth, client retention and continued investment in recruitment, selectively considering acquisition opportunities, both businesses and teams – which enhance existing capabilities”.
