I am part of 2plan wealth management which is a national advisory firm consisting of Financial Advisers and mortgage and protection specialists.
Being independent is part of what makes me different. It’s the reason I am free to advise you about products from the entire financial marketplace. I don’t act on behalf of any bank or insurance company. So my recommendations are solely about what’s right for you.
Working with 2plan also allows me to offer you all the benefits of a bigger organisation, such as the latest technology, greater financial strength, and the reassurance of a team of experts helping me to get things right first time.
I have many years experience of successful financial practice. I advise clients on a wide range of products, helping them to navigate through their financial journey and achieve their aims – from their first mortgage, right through into retirement and all the investment decisions along the way.
Of course, every client is unique, and so my approach is entirely personal; the aim is to get to know each individual and understand what’s important to them. As a 2plan adviser I have excellent relationships with professional firms such as accountants, solicitors and estate agents meaning that you can also benefit from a network of trusted professionals.
In addition, it’s very important for you to be aware of the significant changes that have taken place over the last few years across the financial services sector. In particular, that each regulated financial adviser now has to hold much higher levels of qualification than ever before. In addition to passing the new exams, we must also hold a current “Statement of Professional Standing” (SPS Certificate). This not only indicates that we have signed up to a code of ethics but also that we have completed at least 35 hours of professional training each year, to stay up to date with changes in the industry, taxation and regulation. My SPS Certificate provides positive re-assurance to my clients that not only am I authorised by our Regulator (The Financial Conduct Authority) but also appropriately qualified and up to date.
