A FINANCIAL services expert has joined a Stourbridge firm which is heading from strength to strength.

Rachel Jefferson is the latest recruit at Prosperity Wealth, becoming the ever-expanding company’s 27th adviser.

The new adviser has joined the St John’s Road firm having worked with Torquil Clark in Wolverhampton since 2001.

Mrs Jefferson said: “When the opportunity came up to join Prosperity Wealth I never had any hesitation.

“It's important to me that I work for a firm which offers truly independent advice and to join a fast-growing firm like Prosperity which has a reputation for its outstanding service to its clients is the perfect fit for me.”

Prosperity Wealth bosses said they are “delighted” to welcome the latest recruit. Matt Bell, director, said: “It's a great statement of intent and shows just how far we have come in a relatively short space of time that we are able to attract leading industry professionals of Rachel's calibre.

“We are delighted to welcome Rachel to the workforce and she becomes our first female adviser which is fantastic as this can be a preference for some clients dealing with certain personal circumstances.

“We also hope this high profile appointment will encourage more women to pursue careers in the industry.”
