East Yorkshire based financial adviser Paul Raper, of True Potential Wealth Management LLP, has been voted as one of the top 200 Rated Independent Financial Advisers in the UK by his clients.

Paul grew up in Bridlington and North Frodingham and studied Business at Northumbria University before moving to London, where he had a successful career in selling Financial Analysis tools to Investment Banks and Fund Managers in London and Europe, working for companies such as Bloomberg and Reuters.

In 2004 he and his wife Katie relocated back to Yorkshire after the birth of their first son Archie.

“The desire to move back North was strong as it is a better place to raise children and to be closer to family”, he said.

The coulple now live outside Pocklington and have two more children - Johnny and Pollyanna.

The career change to become an IFA was driven by using his previous knowledge from his career in London, his like of working with and helping people, and a genuine desire to improve on his own poor experience of dealing with IFAs when he took out his own pension.

Paul said: “It is great to be recognised as a top 200 adviser out of the 20,000 plus IFAs in the UK. This recognition is made even more special as it was voted for by my clients. I would like to thank all of those who voted for me for their support.
