Tell us a little bit about you and your business...
Finura Partners was set up in January 2014 by myself, Toby Owen-Browne, Roger Murphy and James Herman. We were inspired to start our own company after working together for a number of years in another financial services company. Our vision for Finura is to create a practice for clients that demand better service.
At Finura our clients are part of the company not the individual which means that we will always provide access to the right specialist advice when needed. We also believe that communication is key and that a collaborative approach, using all media channels, will deliver better results over one meeting per year.
What inspired you to start your own business?
A belief amongst the partners that we could deliver a better service to our clients. We discussed the idea with some of our most trusted clients at our old company, who were all for it, which gave us the confidence to go it alone.
At what point did you decide to move into an office space?
As soon as it became apparent we would leave our old company, we wanted to start immediately.
What are the benefits to your business for using a serviced office space?
As a start-up having an all-inclusive package was important for cash flow modelling as was reduced capital outlay.
What has been the most difficult obstacle you have faced so far?
Recruitment of a back office support team. As part of our drive to deliver better outcomes and service for clients we need highly skilled para-planners and operations coordinators. They are a rare breed.
What has been your biggest lesson learnt while you have been running your business?
You cannot do everything yourself, delegation and trust is crucial.
What has been your biggest success to date?
Turning a profit in our first month of trading.
What’s the best business advice you’ve been given that you’d like to share?
Make a business plan and execute it ruthlessly.
