Meet our advisers
Darrel Smethurst DipFA

This qualification assesses the understanding of the commercial and regulatory financial services environment, the role and legal obligations of regulated advisers and key concepts of risk and ethics.

This qualification assesses a knowledge and understanding of the UK regulation environment in the financial services industry, mortgage products, repayment options and the giving of mortgage advice.

The Diploma enhances knowledge in core areas such as regulation, investment principles, risk, taxation and personal financial planning using real-life scenarios to develop the essential skills to apply this technical knowledge in practice

What our clients say
Jan 2017 I felt you explained what options were open to me clearly and efficiently and answered any queries I had quickly. When necessary, any changes that were made to my possible options were tailored towards me to suit my needs. You ensured I completely understood each stage of the process before we proceeded as well, which helped me feel comfortable and confident in the decisions I were making.
