Happily married over 20 years and with two wonderful children, life has been good to me and has provided a great base for my career. I have been in Financial Services for the past 22 years, the first 15 of which were with NM Schroder Financial Management and then Friends Provident until 2004. Having lived in the Buckingham area all my life, it was therefore an entirely logical step for me in late 2004 that I should base my practice as an Independent Financial Adviser in the Buckingham, Brackley, Stony Stratford ‘triangle’ that I call home. Most of my new clients tend to come from the local area, since they are most often introduced to me by existing satisfied customers, though I also look after people from most other parts of the country. I'm currently on the last leg of my studies toward Chartered Financial Planner status, which I hope to have wrapped up in the near future. As an Independent Financial Adviser in Buckingham I am always happy to meet with potential clients who would like to explore their plans and objectives in a no obligation environment.
