When it comes to better administrative management and quick and accurate completion of various financial planning tasks, outsourced paraplanning can prove to be a very helpful service. While paraplanning has been around for quite some time, outsourced paraplanning is a fairly new concept which is gaining rapid traction due the numerous advantages it brings. Let’s take a look at how outsourcing this task can be a lot more effective than relying on in-house paraplanners.
The expertise of an outsourced paraplanner
An outsourced paraplanner does almost the same tasks that an in-house paraplanner would do. A broad classification would be:
- Dealing with compliance issues
- Research for investments and providers as per requirements
- Preparing critical reports
In addition to that, there are several other areas and processes that the outsourced paraplanners are able to handle with perfection. They are trained and qualified individuals who know the best ways of administering financial records for clients.

Why outsourced paraplanning services
Beyond the main advantage of reduced costs of the paraplanner themselves, there are a number of advantages to outsourcing your paraplanning. A few of the main ones are as follows.
An outsourced paraplanning company enables you to enjoy more flexibility in your business. That is simply because they are able to quickly ramp up and down resources based on workloads. This is often not the case when it comes to in-house paraplanning.
Outsourced paraplanners have quick turnaround times as they can take full advantage of the time difference.
Outsourced paraplanning professionals can help you save your money in more ways than one. Unlike in-house paraplanners who have appraisals every year, costs with an outsourced paraplanning company are fixed and will only be negotiated once every few years.
Saving on overhead costs:
Apart from direct savings, outsourced paraplanners can also help you bring down your overhead costs as you will make significant savings in rent, staffing, IT, paid leave, etc.
A wider talent pool:
Outsourced paraplanning gives you greater access to a wider skill set. The team of paraplanners all possess different skills and are experts in different software something that may not be possible with an in-house paraplanner.
Reducing employee churn:
It is a better idea to outsource your paraplanning work because it makes it possible for you to steer clear of the hassles of training an employee who might just be using paraplanning as a stepping stone in their career. As most paraplanners are generally looking to become financial advisors, there is a high turnover rate which can be avoided with an outsourced paraplanning company.
