what i DO

Once I gain an understanding of your personal and professional financial goals, I will put together a financial plan for you to consider. This plan will set out your financial protection, investment and retirement goals. Where investment is at the core of the recommended plan, I will help you gain an understanding of the principles of risk versus reward and help you identify your appetite and tolerance for risk and market volatility.

  • I will research the market for the most suitable financial products to achieve your financial goals.
  • I will negotiate best terms with the product providers on your behalf and implement the required policies.
  • I will schedule review meetings with you to ensure the financial plan and all of the recommendations remain appropriate.
  • I will guide you through the claims process in the event of a valid claim arising from a life, serious illness or income protection plan.
  • I will guide you through ongoing investment processes and the maturity process for savings and investment plans. 
  • I will work with your employer to sort out any issues pertaining to pensions in redundancy, early-retirement or transfers. We advise on ancillary benefits like death-in-service and gratuities.
  • I will guide you through the post-retirement process including Annuities, ARF's and AMRF's.

Whilst many clients prefer in-person meetings a growing number have chosen to meet remotely. This means that meetings may be held at any time of day (within reason) and with minimum disruption to home or workplace life. I am set up to conduct business virtually or in-person. All new business may be completed remotely.You choose the format that suits you best and away we go.
