Senior Financial Adviser - Chartered Financial Planner, APFS

Rated 4.7 out of 5

Top Rated Adviser 2021

I joined TPO in January 2014 following a successful early career at other Independent Financial Planning firms. I offer advice on pensions, investments, protection, and inheritance planning bringing clarity, reassurance, and comfort to clients.

I adopt a friendly and proactive approach, clearly articulating the benefits and value of financial planning by keeping it interesting, informative, and personalised to the client’s specific requirements.

I take time to truly understand a client’s background, what is important to them, where they are in life, and where they want to be.

This forms the strong foundations to create a clear, bespoke, and realistic financial planning strategy to help achieve the client’s goals both now and in the future.

I find it particularly rewarding to be able to explain complex financial issues to clients, in a way that they can relate to and understand, to empower them to make informed and confident decisions surrounding their wealth throughout their lives.

What drives me?

Outside of the office, whether it be running, rock climbing, playing golf, or road biking, I like to keep active.

I am always on the lookout for new experiences or challenges and am passionate about financial education – often apparent when speaking with existing clients about Intergenerational Planning.
