Zahid Asghar

Adviser Support

Zahid works in our busy Adviser Support Department as Senior Administrator, ensuring that our Advisers get the very best level of help and support in their preparation to meet clients and the completion of work afterwards. With Zahid’s experience in Financial Services he is also able to assist Advisers with various checks on reports and files, and provide insurance quotes when needed. In addition he keeps an overview of the volume of work coming into the department and ensures that it’s assigned and completed promptly, accurately and compliantly. This is a busy and varied role requiring Zahid to work closely with our Advisers, the rest of the team, our clients and outside companies like pension providers.

Zahid has a wide and varied background in Financial Services spanning around 15 years. He initially worked for Natwest bank as a cashier eventually working his way up to being promoted to Branch Manager. In addition he spent some time working for Vitality in life assurance as well as gaining some experience of working for a UK based IFA company as a Financial Adviser. Zahid eventually took up an opportunity to work in Dubai for over 2 years giving Wealth Management advice to the local British expats, eventually returning to the UK for family reasons. As Zahid joined Logic this meant he brought a good broad range of experience from several areas of Financial Services both at home and overseas.

Zahid lives locally and has 2 young children. He has always enjoyed sport and even at the age of just 9 years old, he has happy memories of his class winning a prize which was a tour of Manchester City’s old ground Maine Road. Needless to say this is still his favourite football team and he watches them whenever he can. As a teenager he was also a talented cricketer and played in the Under 16s teams for both Lancashire Cricket Club and Manchester Boys. In 2002 he was delighted to secure a place as one of over 10,000 volunteers working for the Manchester Common Wealth Games, an unforgettable experience which he really enjoyed.

Nowadays away from work, Zahid still likes to remain active and fit, enjoying working out in the gym as well as playing football whenever the chance arises. Holidays for Zahid also tend to be pretty busy since he enjoys travelling to new places and exploring their culture and history.
