As Principal Consultant, I oversee all operations of the business. I have support from a variety of individuals to help the business run as efficiently as possible, which allows me to ensure I help my clients as effectively as possible.
I see myself as a Consultant rather than a Financial Adviser as I think it’s important that an individual makes their own decision. I will simply provide options which in turn will help them decide as I provide my counsel.
I will personally always take the time to learn about each client and what their objectives are. I will then work with them to formulate a strategy that will contribute towards achieving their financial goals. This could be from saving to pay for university fees for their children, through to helping towards achieving a desired income in retirement.
I always use clear and concise language so each client is fully informed. I am told I am personable, friendly and empathetic which I feel are key attributes someone looks for when deciding who they would like to work with over the long-term help manage their financial affairs.
Away from the world of finance, I am a big sports fan. I have supported Arsenal since I was 5, which to date hasn’t impacted my ability to help other football fans, and I do try to play golf occasionally.
I am married with two gorgeous children and the business I am building is for them; this is why how it is built and the manner in which is achieved is vitally important to me.
Thanks for taking the time to read this page, and if you have any questions, please feel free to get in touch.
