Radiant launches Corporate Benefits division

Radiant Financial Group is pleased to announce it has today established its ‘Radiant Corporate Benefits’ division, an evolution of the Group’s existing corporate client capabilities, in recognition of its importance to the Group and potential for substantial further growth.

Radiant has a unique proposition within the employee benefits sector; it is able to link up its employee benefits and wellbeing solutions with its IFA services, meaning Radiant can help employees go beyond where they are often guided by traditional consultancies, i.e. ‘what you could do’ to be advised the more direct ‘what you should do’ when it comes to your finances. Employers who engage with Radiant’s financial wellbeing programme can therefore ensure their employees receive not only greatly improved financial education, they will also obtain genuine professional advice on how to best manage and improve their personal situations.

Radiant has been refining this proposition since David Dolding, Director of Corporate Benefits joined the Group in 2020. All existing corporate clients plus the 25 new clients signed up in the past six months are now benefiting from this enhanced offering.

Financial wellbeing is crucially important to a person’s overall sense of security and wellbeing. It is therefore no surprise it has become a hugely desired corporate benefit, particularly now as employees have to contend with all the impacts of the Covid-19 pandemic. A CIPD survey undertaken in October 2020 found that 68% of employers reported that their employees’ financial wellbeing had worsened due to Covid-19.

David Dolding leads Radiant Corporate Benefits and has recently been joined by new appointment Simon Juffs, who will spearhead the division’s new business development activities.

Radiant provides advice on corporate benefits in the following areas:

  • Employee wellbeing
  • Financial education
  • Group pension schemes
  • Auto-enrolment
  • Employee communication programmes
  • Online benefits portals
  • Death in service benefits
  • Income Protection
  • Private Medical Insurance
  • Critical Illness schemes

David Dolding, Director of Corporate Benefits at Radiant, commented:

“Launching Radiant Corporate Benefits today brings me great pride. I believe we have created a unique and highly valuable offering in this space that stands us apart from our peers. I am excited to therefore continue building out our team and bringing our solutions to more employers. Our embedded IFA capability means we are able to engage, educate and most importantly, actively advise on every aspect of an employee’s financial world: their mortgage, their taxes, their investments, their pensions and more.

We are ahead of curve when it comes to financial wellbeing and want to share that with employers looking to provide a meaningful benefit to their people. At this juncture we are all looking for ways to ‘build back better’ from the pain of the pandemic, and this is a great way for employers to do so with their teams.”
