Paul Pickering

Paul is an experienced Financial Adviser who has been in the Pensions & Investment industry for 34 years. Beginning his career with Southern Life, a leading Life, Pensions and Investment provider in South Africa, Paul quickly gained valuable experience working in varied divisions of the business.

In 1986 Paul returned to the UK joining Norwich Union as a Trainee Broker Consultant operating from their Newcastle Office. After just 18 months as a Trainee Paul was offered and accepted a Broker Consultants role with Norwich Union in Middlesbrough.  Paul’s role involved him working with Independent Financial Advisers and in his words ‘I had to grow up quickly managing the demands of a large panel of Financial Advisers’.  After 5 years with Norwich Union on Teesside, Paul was promoted to a City Centre area in Newcastle as a Senior Sales Consultant.

After 19 years with Norwich Union (by then merged into CGNU plc) Paul joined GE Life as a Pensions Consultant in 2005 specialising in Post Retirement provision. Whilst Paul enjoyed his time at GE Life he by now began to consider that his abilities and attributes would be better suited to providing Financial Planning and Advice for Personal and Corporate Clients.

In February 2006 Paul accepted a role as a Financial Consultant with Teesside Financial Consultants Ltd in Middlesbrough with a remit to provide Independent Financial Advice for Corporate and High Net-Worth Clients of the business. During his 10 years with Teesside Financial, Paul built up a close working relationship with his Personal and Corporate clients providing a professional ongoing advice service with the emphasis on Financial Planning.

Although Paul enjoyed his time with Teesside Financial, his long-term plan was to manage a Core customer base allowing him to focus his resources more effectively on a Selected Client base. He considered that Verity Wealth Management LLP offered the best opportunity to achieve this objective and Paul was delighted to join our business in October 2016. Paul will provide Personal and Corporate Independent Financial Advice primarily to his existing client base but he will also support and advise clients of Verity WM. Paul holds the Pensions Specialist license which allows him to advise customers with more complex pension needs.
