My specific areas of expertise:

Investment & Wealth Management

Creating, growing, and then maintaining wealth is key to successful financial planning and should be part of a longer-term investment strategy.

Pensions & Retirement Planning

When you think about the future, what does your retirement look like to you? An important question which we can help you answer.


Securing the right mortgage can make the difference between a property that becomes a happy and secure family home and one that ends up as a financial burden.

Lifetime Financial Planning

If you have a Defined Benefit or Final Salary pension scheme, there may be individual circumstances where a pension transfer could be advantageous.

Later Life & Estate Planning

We spend a lifetime building our wealth, so it’s important to find the most effective way to protect your assets, in order for you to pass them on to those you love as efficiently as possible.

Personal protection

Talking about illness, disability or death is never an easy conversation to have but protecting against the unexpected will help with financial security and ensure your family can cope should the worst happen.

Wills & power of attorney

Making a Will is essential to ensuring that your wealth benefits those whom you choose and is not taken by taxation, unnecessary legal costs and beneficiaries chosen by the law.
