About us

I believe in the importance of providing clear, independent, concise and jargon-free information to customers so that they can make informed decisions about their finances.

It is not uncommon for customers to feel daunted about the concept of receiving financial advice. Placing your trust in a professional to help you manage your money takes careful consideration.

This is why I take a relaxed but professional approach to financial planning. I ensure that all prospective customers are given sufficient information and time to reflect on their options before any commitments are made by either party.

You may find that you have questions about financial planning or your pensions / investments but are not ready to commit to a meeting. This is not a problem. Feel free to click on the "Show Number" tab on the right hand side of this profile. This will give you a number that redirects you to my phone where I will be happy to answer any initial queries you may have.
