This week Elena is joined by Chartered Financial Planner Tom Hopson from HFMC Wealth LLP. Tom faces a particular challenge in his career, he’s young! Did you know that 58% of financial planners are due to retire within the next 10 years!? This means that young planners like Tom are rare and more will be needed to fill the gap.
