Matthew Jasper offers a behind the scenes look at what it is like working at our head office.
How did you get into the industry?
In 2016 I did a business admin apprenticeship on the Strategy team at True Potential. I’ve always had a very strong interest in financial markets and I thought a career with a company that has such a big influence in the finance industry would be perfect for me. After around 18 months on the Strategy team, I decided to broaden my horizons and gain some experience elsewhere in the company. This lead me to the Investment Management team.
What does your job entail?
My current role is working on the operational, day-to-day running of the new True Potential funds. Most of my day is dedicated to a series of set procedures to ensure everything is running smoothly. I very much enjoy working with data, so I tend to work on the systems and control areas of the team as much as possible.
What do you enjoy most about your job?
I enjoy the fact that each day is different. Looking passed the daily tasks, there are often jobs that come up that I’ve not seen before. These require me to apply my existing knowledge to find a solution and once complete, justify why I used the method that I did. This ensures that I am kept on my toes and adds a bit of change to my day.
Why is the Company special?
True Potential has grown rapidly. We work with over a fifth of all financial advisers in the UK and have over 7 billion pounds on our platform. Despite this huge rate of growth, True Potential still makes time for their staff. Everyone working for the company has the potential to progress and become qualified in the area that suits their job role and their own future prospects.
What are you most excited about for the future of the company?
I am very much looking forward to seeing the company continue to grow and move into new areas of the industry. We are a very innovative company and are constantly looking to expand to new areas of the finance sector and find new ideas to improve them.
