My goal as an independent financial advisor is to provide a bespoke package for your needs. I can advise on all areas of your finances ranging from mortgages all the way through to investment and pension advice.
I have no ties to any specific provider, lender or insurer. Meaning I am always looking at consulting you in a way that wholly benefits your situation. Breeding confidence in my clients through years of experience and consistent portfolio gains has left me with a business that I am lucky enough to include my own family in.
When I am not working I really like to jet off somewhere hot with my wife sue and go on adventures, if not abroad than down to the south coast where I was born to lap up the fresh sea air.
Why did I get into financial services?
For me, I found it personally tough when looking at my own investment and pension options. I went to a few advisors and just thought there really wasn’t anyone offering a clear, quick and speedy package. Some advisors were fast, but not knowledgeable or thorough, others were great but it took forever and a day to hear back from them.
I thought I could offer a professional package to clients and that’s where it all started back in 1983. I have been advising clients all over the UK ever since. With a speed of service, professionalism and experience that is appreciated by our entire client bank.
Having navigated through the financial crisis of 2007/2008 and big fund drops off the back of COVID-19 I have more than enough market experience in financial advice. Partnering this with my superb team and communication skills I can offer a thorough and fantastic package to any prospective clients looking for financial consultation.
