Professionally

I help clients become more confident with their finances and can advise on tax-efficient solutions to preserve family wealth. Sometimes, I collaborate with other advisors and professionals to ensure that you get the best all-round solution.

I joined Globe in 2004, having been a financial advisor since 1995.

I specialise in advising on family money, trust investments, pensions and drawdown, inheritance tax planning and wealth planning.

Personally

I’m married with two grown-up children. In my spare time, I play the guitar and enjoy going to gigs. Sadly, I’m not ready for a public performance just yet. I like to read novels, especially futuristic Sci-Fi.

I’m the founder of a campaign to encourage local businesses in the Royal Borough of Kingston called Kingston Pound. I am interested in the idea of Community Wealth Building where we encourage more local buying, investment and employment.
