About us

Are you looking for a local professional to give you plain speaking financial advice?

I am a Certified Financial Adviser, holding the Diploma in Financial Advice qualification ( DipFA ) and the Certificate in Long Term Care Insurance ( CeLTCI ). I am also a member of the London Institute of Banking and Finance ( MLIBF ).

Financial Planning is about effective communication with your Adviser and fully understanding what you want your money to do for you. Its about your Adviser talking in plain and simple terms and delivering solutions that are effective and specific to you. Regular ongoing communication is key to help you stay on track.

I am part of a team of Financial Advisers, based in Shenstone, who are are supported by in house administration, research and client liaison teams. I like the odd glass of red wine and am partial to chocolate biscuits, but not necessarily at the same time.
