New appointment for growing West Lancs financial firm

West Lancashire firm Acumen Financial Partnership has brought in a new trainee financial adviser. 

Daniel Frampton, 19, made it to the final selection process to become a Royal Marines Officer and is now looking to bring the dedication and efficiency learnt during his military training into a career within the financial sector. 

This latest addition to Acumen’s ranks sees the team grow to 15, a figure which includes seven qualified financial advisers. 

Daniel will initially work within the expanding protection products market alongside Acumen director Jon Landy. 

Jon Landy said: 

“We believe in investing in young talent and saw an opportunity with Daniel to recruit someone with real potential and a willingness to learn. 

“We have mapped out a five-year plan for him to learn the ropes and hopefully become a full Chartered Financial Planner.” 

Formed in 2006 on Merseyside, Acumen relocated to Burscough, Lancashire in 2016 and currently has around £175m funds under its management.
