We are delighted to announce that Financial Adviser, Carl Hobbins has joined our team of Advisers. Carl has worked in financial services for over 12 years. He has held management roles at HSBC and Lloyds Bank in the role of Area Mortgage Manager, responsible for the development and performance of mortgage advisers. Most recently Carl has operated his own successful practice.
Over recent years the financial services sector has seen a huge increase in additional admin and compliance tasks that Advisers must carry out. Here at Four Oaks Financial Services we have a large support team to assist Carl. This will free up more of his time to do what he enjoys most which is advising his clients.
Carl says “I’ve joined Four Oaks for three reasons. Firstly, the professional back-office support provided to me. Secondly, as part of a larger practice my clients will be able to access a wider range of financial planning services. Thirdly, Four Oaks are part of the Quilter Financial Planning network. The largest network of Financial Advisers in the UK and whom in November 2019 was voted number 1 in the FTAdviser Top 100 Advisers Ranking. It is great to be able to tell my clients that I am part of the network that sponsors the Rugby!”
Carl’s claim to fame is….
My claim to fame is having dinner with Howard Webb a number of years ago, an ex-professional football referee, after attending a motivational speaker conference he presented at. We discussed family life as well as his involvement refereeing the 2010 and 2014 World Cups. It was fascinating discussing his run-ins with some of football’s most prolific football Managers throughout his career.
