Multi-award winning paraplanner Chloe Moran has decided to join the team at London-based Rose and North.
Moran started working at Standard Life's advice arm 1825 in February 2018, where she was a senior paraplanner. At Rose and North, she will transition to more of a financial planning role.
Before 1825 she worked at wealth management firm Connor Broadley, and national advice firm Tilney Group.
Moran was the recipient of two awards - including the coveted Rising Star gong - at PA's inaugural New Talent Awards, which took place last month. In awarding her the Paraplanner of the Year award, the judges said Moran was "clearly more than a paraplanner. An outstanding example of someone working hard in their role but also using their platform to benefit the industry".
She also scooped the Woman of the Year - Paraplanning accolade at PA's 2019 Women in Financial Advice Awards.
Moran is set to join the team at Rose and North on 14 October. Rose and North was founded by 2012 by Hayley North, who has been a judge and finalist in numerous awards hosted by Professional Adviser.
Moran said: "I met Hayley at the Women in Financial Advice Awards in 2018 and we got on really well, so when she approached me earlier this year with a planner role it was a no brainer. Making the transition from a paraplanner to a planner role is going to be a challenge, but I'm really excited to have Hayley as a mentor.
"Rose and North is a great opportunity for me to have an impact as the company grows. I'm really focused on equality and inclusion, and working in a team that can really promote development and awareness."
