NMG Survey August 2010

by Martin Vaughan on 14 August 2010

NMG Paraplanner Survey

The NMG survey is now firmly established as the leading research into the role of the paraplanner and the thoughts and experiences of paraplanners themselves.

We have had absolutely fantastic feedback from everyone who has completed the survey so far and we both thank you enormously for taking the time to do this.

As ever though to make this work as meaningful as possible we need as many paraplanners as possible to complete the survey. This will ensure that the industry professionals who study the results of the survey can make changes to their company, the way they work or what they do for us as paraplanners.

The results of the surveys to date have provided not only a fantastic picture of the wide range of skills paraplanners have but also the important role they play in a modern financial planning practice.

The fourth survey of 2010 is now open and we would like to encourage as many of you as possible to logon to the link below and take part. The more people who take part the better the results.


It should only take you around 15 minutes to complete and your opinions do get heard!

You can find the results from the last survey on the website. You will see that we were particularly interested in your view on the ‘Paraplanner of the Year Award’ which is soon to be awarded for the third year running!

This wave NMG really want to get your feedback on some interesting new topics such as the impact of the new Government and the business you do with clients who are about to enter retirement.

So why not take the time to complete the survey! If you complete before midnight on 27th August 2010 you could also win one of the great prizes detailed below. Winners will be notified a week after the survey closes.

No cash alternatives will be provided. Surveys must be complete in order to qualify for entry. Winners will be notified by phone or email the week after the survey closes. All prizes must be claimed within 6 months of notification, unless otherwise specified. We reserve the right to extend the closing date of the survey (by a maximum of 5 days from the closing date specified) if our target sample sizes are not achieved.


Thank you all very much for your help with this. It is very much appreciated.
