Nigel Copperwheat

Operations Director

About Nigel

As one of the founding Directors of Business & Personal Investment, I created BPI in 1999 to provide personal, professional, and independent advice to individuals and businesses in the Small to Medium Sized-Enterprise (SME) market.

While no longer performing an advisory role, I continue to use my 35 years’ financial services experience to act as the Company’s Operations Director.

Outside of work

Having been a qualified and active football referee for fifteen years and as a member of both Kent and Middlesex County Cricket Clubs, I take a keen interest in most sports.

I was Manager of the London FA Women’s Representative team from 1999 to 2011 too, and have been a Committee member of the Camden Sunday Football League since 1986. I used to play cricket and football myself (exceedingly badly) but am now a mere spectator of both sports – usually from the bar.
