Careers with Holborn Assets Ltd

Holborn Assets Limited enjoys an enviable reputation in the industry for integrity and customer care that is second to none. To maintain this privileged reputation we seek people from within the Financial Services Industry who can demonstrate a track record to meet our standards.

As a company we help our clients to: 'Put the right money in the right place at the right time'

Through a strict in-house regulated system, we identify customer needs and construct an individually tailored Financial Plan, which we discuss over two or three meetings to ensure that we help people to achieve their financial and life goals.

Our advisers add immense value to their customers by bringing genuine innovative solutions to genuine financial problems. This may involve writing a will, opening an offshore bank account, establishing a Trust, an offshore company, advising on foreign and UK pensions, setting up an international private pension plan or simply advising on how to invest a client's capital successfully.

Head Office

The Holborn Group has embarked on a three-year growth plan to build a team of 100 highly qualified and highly professional IFAs from their 12,500 sq ft Head Office in New Dubai.

Holborn's head office boasts superb facilities including an 1800 sq ft cafeteria where informal client meetings can be held, four private meeting rooms, a 20 seat capacity boardroom for seminars or private meetings and a 60 seat training and seminar room with the latest in audio visual equipment.

The Market

Demand for professional advice far outstrips supply in the Middle East and as a consequence we are currently experiencing phenomenal growth of 30% Year on Year.

There are currently circa 150,000 British Families, 125,000 South Africans, 50,000 Europeans and over 80 other expatriate nationalities in the UAE alone.

1 hour down the road is the as yet untapped potential of Abu Dhabi, the capital of the UAE which is growing faster than any other City in the world, providing an additional huge financial services market.

With similar patterns emerging in Qatar, Oman, Bahrain, Saudi Arabia and the rest of the Gulf Region, we are able to offer excellent career moves for qualified advisers.

We are proud to be able to provide our clients with the best financial planning advice, group products and estate planning services. Working for Holborn means being part of a team that shares our desire to serve our customers with the best possible care.

We recruit from all over the Western world, with a large portion of our advisers coming from a strong financial services background in the UK. Our advisers work independently, but have the support and guidance of structured teams, with experts in all fields.

Qualifications are key

All our advisers must be qualified to operate within their home territories. Our desire is to always stay ahead of our competition, which is why we pay for all our staff to be members of the UK Chartered Insurance Institute and work towards additional qualifications, thus ensuring we deliver the best possible service.
