Clare McCarthy

I advise on a broad range of financial planning areas including, pensions, savings and investments. I feel passionately about establishing a client's priorities and building a financial plan that works for them in the long term.

I have experience in cashflow modelling and financial forecasting, which can guide my clients’ financial futures. I strongly believe it is important to provide clear and honest advice to empower clients to make informed decisions to achieve their personal and financial goals.

Working at the Private Office means being part of an experienced team with a vast range of expertise. My aim is to simplify complex financial matters and provide the best solution for all clients based upon their individual goals and objectives.

Outside of work I enjoy travelling and learning about different parts of the world. I also enjoy horse riding and jogging in my free time.
