Outsourced Paraplanning Teams With Emapta

If you want your financial planners to focus on higher-value advisory services and client-facing tasks, then getting paraplanners rather than hiring additional advisers is a cost-effective choice. However, a high-quality paraplanning team can be difficult and expensive to build locally—it’s a relatively new career path that requires specific skill sets in technical research and financial analysis. An outsourced paraplanning team – instead of an in-house one – is a smart option for budget-conscious organisations to minimise costs while looking to increase revenue and profitability.

Business processing outsourcing (BPO) companies, such as Emapta with access to a wide-ranging talent pool of proficient financial paraplanners from various countries, can help you set up easy-to-scale contract paraplanning teams that can speed up your financial planning processes, free valuable time for your local team and save you up to 72% in outsourced paraplanning fees.

A Paraplanning Team of Your Own

Paraplanners can give you a better advantage over hiring administrative assistants because on top of researching and gathering data, they can also provide analysis and insights that are useful for your financial planners. This means that your offshore paraplanning team will work closely with your financial planners. The advantage of hiring paraplanners with Emapta is that we give you full control over your team and facilitate the implementation of your culture, processes, and platforms in your offshore operations, making integration with your onshore team seamless.

Your dedicated outsourced paraplanners can work either remotely or in one of our 18 office locations complete with HR, admin, and 24/7 IT support. Wherever they report from, we ensure that their connection and tools are protected with our enterprise-grade data security protocols.

We also help your offshore paraplanners cope with the fast-paced working environment by fostering an engaging work culture that offers technical training programs, CPD-granting certification courses and health and wellness activities. These initiatives help drive down employee attrition, resulting in the successful integration of our clients’ offshore teams into their onshore operations.
