About Me

On leaving Sheffield University in 2005 with a degree in Politics, I started working for a large insurance company. This sparked my interest in financial services, and I was given the opportunity of studying for the financial planning exams with the Chartered Insurance Institute (CII). During my time with the company I worked in the Endowment Complaints team which meant I learnt a bit about how to solve tricky client situations!

I made the move south to London in 2007 and joined a financial planning practice, from there moving to a software company that developed software for use by financial planners. Realising software wasn’t quite my forte, I moved back into financial planning in 2009, joining a practice in Central London. The company offered a range of finance-related services, but my core strengths and experience continued to be in holistic UK financial planning, looking after the financial affairs of a group of clients and their families.

My wife and I moved to Surrey in 2017, first with one and now with two young sons. I decided that cutting out the commute, and perhaps the complexity of a large, international finance firm was in my interests, and found Harding Financial, which has been a superb move for me.

What I love about Harding Financial

It has to be the team. Everyone is friendly, committed to great client service and – most importantly – doing the right thing by each other and our clients. It is a pleasure to come into work every day and be part of that culture.

As I look towards the future

I have a few more qualifications to get under my belt, specifically in Long Term Care planning and possibly mortgages and equity release. Otherwise it is just developing my client base at Harding Financial, striving to offer the best possible service and advice, and keeping up with the ever changing legislation and economic environment.

At the weekend you'll find me

Chasing two young sons; it starts with rugby training (for two year olds – chaos) and moves through swimming, visiting farms, playgrounds and seeing family and friends around the country. We love to get away to the south coast or the Lake District, and if time ever happens to allow again, I’d love to get back into running, tennis, golf and skiing – here’s hoping!

You can’t beat a good ham and cheese toastie!
