I began my advisory career dealing with investments and pensions, including mortgage and protection work and as we migrate to being specialist, I have returned to it. I find it most satisfying and I strongly believe we should all enjoy what we do. I like helping my customers purchase their first or second homes, protect themselves from debt and ownership worries and ensure they are set up for whatever life may bring to their door.
I am married, with grown up children, and now grandchildren, I live in Kent. Prior to moving into financial advice. I was a professional footballer/manager. I currently umpire my local cricket team on most summer weekends.
I have Financial Planning Certificates 1-3 and the Mortgage Advice Qualification, the precursor to the Certificate in Mortgage Advice and Practice, todays equivalent.
