I've been in this profession since 1998 and over this time there hasn't been a lot that I haven't seen with changes in legislation and market performance over the period.
In my spare time I really enjoy spending time with my children taking them to their various club/sports activities. I enjoy eating out and socialising with friends. I'm a extremely keen (but poor) technology geek and as my wife will testify too - pretty useless at DIY.
Understanding the vast world of investments and pensions can be a minefield...........translating the array of jargon used when trying to understand your options can also be confusing.

* Investing in a tax efficient manner

* early retirement planning
* taking pension benefits
* organising your financial "game plan"
