Financial planning firm Paradigm Norton has expanded its teams in London and Bristol after a what it called a "record year of growth".
The hires will see four financial planners join its London office and five join its Bristol base. Two more employees have joined the firm to help it meet administration and compliance demands.
Paradigm Norton's Bristol and London firms have almost doubled their income to £8m, up from £4.8m in the past three years, with more than £1bn of assets under management. The company also has an office in Torquay.
This year will see the firm launch the Paradigm Norton Leadership Academy, a programme in partnership with the University of the West of England designed to equip the future leaders of the business with the skills they need to develop.
Paradigm Norton also transitioned to become employee-owned earlier this year by giving members a stake in the business's future.
Paradigm Norton CEO Barry Horner (pictured) said: "One of our key values is the importance we place on team - ‘people matter'."
He said the firm had a philosophy that seeks to help everyone improve: "We always look to hire a high calibre of talent who are committed to their own progression and the businesses and by working together we are able to grow and thrive."
"The collective ownership by all the team secures the future of the company and our core values meaning we can long outlast the founders and senior team without the threat of a takeover or sale that could result in a dramatic change in business culture."
