Paragem, a provider of comprehensive licensing solutions for professional financial advisers, and a subsidiary of wealth management firm HUB24, has appointed Nathan Jacobsen as the company’s new Managing Director.
It was announced in April that the business founders were stepping away from operational involvement, with Ian Knox remaining in the role of Chairman.
Jacobsen was previously General Manager at Perpetual Private, where he was responsible for developing new market segments in its high net worth advice and trustee business. This included growing advisory services for medical specialists starting out in private practice as well as investment and trustee services for Indigenous communities looking to build greater financial sustainability.
HUB24 Group CEO, Andrew Alcock, says: “Nathan’s strong leadership, business strategy and experience growing advice businesses make him the perfect fit to take Paragem forward. It was also important for us to find someone who aligns with the culture and values that define Paragem.
“I’d like to thank Ian Knox, Charlie Haynes and the Paragem practices for building an exceptional licensee and we are looking forward to both Ian and Nathan’s leadership for Paragem’s ongoing growth and evolution.”
“More than ever, it is critical for licensees, advisers, platforms and technology providers to work hand-in-hand to create efficient and compliant business models.”
“There is a great opportunity for this industry to reshape how we provide great outcomes for our clients and both HUB24 and Paragem are committed to this goal.”
Jacobsen will start at Paragem in September.
