Chris Merry

I support clients with holistic financial planning needs. This ranges from protection, cash management, investments, planning for retirement, and helping pass wealth onto the next generation, through estate planning. 

My priority is to establish the goals, objectives, and aspirations of my clients, so we can work collaboratively to formulate a financial plan, ensuring these are achieved.

What drives me?

My clients often ask if a financial objective is possible, such as can I retire when I want to? I enjoy nothing more than demonstrating this is achievable, through the use of cashflow modeling and financial forecasting.

Cashflow modeling and financial forecasting help clients visualise what their financial future might look like, which provides them with clarity and peace of mind moving forward.
