    An invented term, like Garbologist for a Garbage taker?

    Probably a brokers assistant?

    Someone that has the credit assessment skills and experience, but doesnt have a licence per se...........not everyone wants to be on the " coal face".

    Similar to para legal, para medic, and eels supporters :)

    I believe para means on the side, like parallel, meaning working with the licensed or authorised person under their guidance.

    My life experience tells me that street smarts of a Parra X is often worth spades more than the " papers" of the authorised person.

    A broker that's drunk too much at a conference? I've seen a few of those...
