2015. Past

1to1 Paraplanning was founded in 2015 by Jonathan Dawson who also manages the 1to1 paraplanning team. The origins of the business was to provide an advanced paraplanning service to City based wealth managers and family offices with sophisticated client needs.

2020. Present

Today, 1to1 Paraplanning works with growing Wealth Management Firms and SJP Partner Practices across the UK who service a wider retail client market. We provide full outsourcing solutions and overflow solutions for existing paraplanning teams.

2025. Future

Our qualified paraplanning team is expected to remain up to date with tax legislation, regulatory and product developments to deliver a high quality service to our firms. The financial services world never stops spinning and the way we work with advisers is constantly evolving.

Jonathan Dawson Dip PFS
Paraplanning Director & Founder

Engineering the best outsourcing solution for advisers.

Jonathan, started his career in financial services in 2006 as a broker support for Swiss Re and Gissings. Progressing from the fast pace of the City, he became an IFA at 21 and managed an eclectic client base of professionals and business owners for several wealth management firms. Following the introduction of RDR, he could see the growing support needs of advisers and used his first hand experience to form an outsourced paraplanning business.

Off the field, it’s all things outdoors; skiing, windsurfing, sailing, or putting in miles on his Italian road bike…if not cleaning it.
