Director and Financial Planner at Archytas Wealth Management, I operate in Cardiff and the Cotswolds area and specialise in investment, tax and pension planning.
I started my financial services career working in the foreign currency trading team, for Merrill Lynch, at the Bank of New York, in London before leaving to become a fully-qualified independent financial adviser.
I am responsible, as part of the Board, for ensuring that our business runs as efficiently as possible so as to deliver the very best customer service to all of our clients.
A member of the Chartered Institute of Insurance (CII) and the PFS Personal Finance Society, I am passionate about being at the forefront of the financial services industry and genuinely want to help our clients and provide them with the best level of service and guidance.
