Born in Edinburgh and now living in Dalkeith I am an Independent Financial Adviser (IFA)
I passionately believe that everyone should have access to high-quality independent financial advice and planning, which is affordable and delivered in a convenient and comfortable environment.
If you have a financial problem, challenge or issue, I’m here to help you.
Spending quality time with clients is very important.
My main goal is to ensure my clients financial goals are fully explored and they understand how to achieve them.
I have worked in Financial Services now for 22 years and understand the importance of ensuring my clients are well looked after.
I firmly believe that people need advice more than ever with such a confusing market place and with banks no longer offering the required level of service. I am passionate that my clients receive the level of care they deserve.
