I have been a financial adviser for twenty years. I have experience in all aspects of individual and corporate financial planning. I also do a lot of work with offshore clients.
My specialist area is pensions, retirement planning, and arranging retirement income solutions. Pensions can be complicated. I like to get clients to tell me about what they want their retirement to look like, what they want to do in retirement, and then I help make sure their pensions are on track to achieve their goals.
I love the outdoor lifestyle and feel most at home on the beach. I enjoy surfing, motorbiking, cycling, training, and football. If I’m not pursuing one of these hobbies, you’ll find me playing with my kids.
I love: Privacy, squash, reading, music, lazy days.
I loathe: Public speaking, small talk, automated help lines, being late, DIY, and gardening
