Senior Financial Adviser - Chartered Financial Planner, APFS, FCSI

Rated 4.9 out of 5

Top Rated Adviser 2022

I am a Chartered Financial Planner and Chartered Wealth manager.  I advise on all aspects of financial planning; from young professionals looking to build their asset base over time, to clients wishing to preserve their estate for future generations whilst also still looking to have some fun themselves! I have worked in the Financial Services profession for over 15 years and was an Executive Director of John Lamb Wealth Management. I have worked at The Private Office since 2019.

I have a speciality in advising clients pre or just post retirement and advising them on the best way to build their assets and then draw down from them as tax efficiently as possible whilst preserving capital if they can. My background as a former discretionary fund manager also means I am well placed to understand and be able to explain clearly the risks clients are taking, or need to take, with their money to meet their ultimate goals and to demystify the investment world for those who are less experienced investors.

I believe that every client is different and has different aims, objectives and circumstances.  I therefore spend time getting to know my clients as individuals and as families, so I can best advise them and also look to build long term relationships so I can be their trusted adviser for the rest of their lifetimes if possible.

What drives me?

I spend most of my free time running around after my two young boys or trying to watch rugby, football, cricket or indeed any sport.  I am also a school governor and help out a lot with various events at the school.  When I get the chance, I am also a keen reader and cinema goer.
