Area of expertise
Pensions, Investments, Inheritance Tax Planning
As a Financial Planner, at the heart of what I do is a simple idea- appropriate planning is the key to financial strength. I use my knowledge and experience to create a plan which is right for my clients.
People trust and choose me to help them make informed choices. I simplify their lives by cutting through the web of options and selecting solutions which are personal to them. I make it easy for my clients as I take on the tasks of arranging the paperwork, communicating with various providers and obtaining necessary information to ensure my clients receive a reliable service.
Before working in the Finance industry I managed a couple of successful restaurants. This experience honed my organisational and planning skills, as well as giving me a focus on financial side of profit and loss. My passion is helping people and coupled with my mathematical background, finance has been a natural progression.
I have been in finance for over 18 years. I started my career in Nat West Bank in 2001 where I looked after the high net worth clients, specialising in investment advice and inheritance tax planning.
Since leaving the bank in 2012, I worked as an Independent Financial Adviser and broadened my experience, to include pensions and general investments such as ISAs. I joined Bellpenny (now Ascot Lloyd) in 2016.
