Experience & Qualifications
I have been in financial services since 1992 and have a successful track record in helping my clients reach their financial objectives. By being independent and using the entire UK financial services market, my clients can be sure that they receive clear, impartial advice to meet their immediate and future financial needs.
I am based on Dunfermline, but have clients all over Scotland and in the North of England. I am happy to meet my clients wherever is most convenient for them (at their place of work, at a local coffee shop/restaurant or in the comfort of their own home) at a time that suits. (I am available for appointments 7 days a week.)
