Finura Makes 2 New Hires To Drive Expansion


Finura has expanded its advisory team with the recruitment of James Dubignon and Chris Budden.

James and Chris both join us having worked together for a number of years at a national asset manager and financial planning firm.

Chris Budden joins with a 21-year background in family, charity and corporate advice. A very experienced holistic adviser, legacy and estate planning is his passion and area of expertise. With a deep understanding of the relationship between financial and legal advice, Chris has also built up a substantial network of professional introducers.

Chris comments:

“Finura is a dynamic and energetic company, with Client centric values at their core which are in symmetry with mine. I absolutely pride myself for the relationships I have forged with and the service I provide to my Clients; helping them and their families to achieve their lifetime goals drives me daily. I am very excited to have joined such a forward-thinking business and am eager for our future together.”

Chris is also a Top-Rated Adviser in the coveted ‘VouchedFor Guide to Top Rated Advisers’.

James also joins as an adviser, with over 16 years’ experience in the financial services profession and over 14 years advising a range of high-net-worth individuals. He holds a Chartered Fellowship with the CISI.

James says:

“The diversity of my Client base has provided me with a vast range of experience, which complements the varying financial needs that people have. I pride myself on providing holistic advice and focusing on matters ranging from tax efficiency of investments, protection and estate planning. My aim is to ensure that people can meet their goals and those of their families through continued interaction. I am delighted to be joining Finura as, like myself, they prioritise Client needs and operate in a way that values each Client and their individual circumstances.”

Nathan Mead-Wellings, Managing Director at Finura, says:

“Our organic growth model to date has reflected our desire for our commercial success to be judged directly against the experiences of our Clients. Both Chris and James share this ethos, putting the Client experience at the heart of their approach, and we are very pleased welcome them to the team.”

Finura also continues to invest in the business by adding two new Client Account Managers, both of which joined the team in March, ensuring a continued high level of support and service to the advisory team and their Clients.
