DeVere's Corporate Solutions expands as European demand soars

The Western European arm of Dubai-headquartered deVere Group is expanding its Corporate Solutions division to provide financial support to firms' employees as part of their Benefits Programs.

James Green (pictured), divisional manager of deVere Western Europe commented: "The growth of Corporate Solutions, involving taking on new professionals, has been directly driven by growing demand from companies throughout Europe seeking to enhance their employees' benefits packages by offering expert financial advice.

"It's becoming harder for companies to recruit and retain top talent and by adding value to their programs, they are able to overcome these issues.

Several major multinational household name companies, including car manufacturers and tech giants, are among the firms already working alongside deVere Corporate Solutions.

After several months of research, the independent wealth adviser says there was clearly a niche in the market.

Miriam Palà, head of corporate solutions, noted: "Our market research showed that the overwhelming majority of major brands on the continent still didn't yet offer this - but wanted to upgrade and boost their employees' benefits programs."

"They were keen to do this because they fully understand that when employees are aware and in control of their personal finances, they're on track to reach their long-term financial goals.  In turn, this makes them more focused at work and more productive for and more engaged with their employer.

"deVere Corporate Solutions allows companies the opportunity to invest in their employees' financial well-being."

Green concluded: "The expansion of this division underscores deVere's commitment to meeting the evolving expectations and needs of both employers and employees."
