Consultant Independent Financial Adviser
I joined BPI in 2012 following the merger of my own financial advice firm, Granville Gower, with BPI.
My particular specialism is in retirement planning – helping individuals and couples to live comfortable, secure and fulfilling retirements. However, as an experienced consultant, there are few areas of personal and corporate finances where I am not able to offer advice and guidance.
My previous experience included 35 years spent in banking and a tenure as Client Relationship Manager at Coutts in Mayfair.
I continue to look after a portfolio of clients and enjoy building strong relationships with them.
Outside of work
I enjoy watching football and used to play rugby and squash. I also appreciate classical music as well as most other forms of music and enjoy travelling the world to seek warmth and sunshine.
