Abigail Banks

I provide bespoke advice to private clients across a range of financial planning areas including retirement planning, inter-generational planning, and investment advice.  

I’m passionate about building long-term relationships with my clients to guide and support them through the financial complexities of life.

My approach when working with clients is to make the complex feel simple to ensure they can plan for their future with clarity and confidence.

What drives me?

I love working within a dynamic business that truly believes in making a positive difference in the lives of the clients we look after. I am passionate about inclusivity in financial services, and I particularly enjoy working alongside women to ensure they have the confidence to take control of their finances.

Prior to joining the financial services industry, I studied Geography at The University of Edinburgh. Outside of work I enjoy travelling to explore new places with my partner and our Dachshund.
