Alex started the practice back in 1981 coming from an Accounting and Business background. He has lectured at many universities for their MBA courses before moving into the financial advisory space. Alex has a wealth of knowledge having helped clients thrive through a number of economic cycles. His dedication to making sure clients understand not only how to move forward, but why has resulted in thousands of referrals from satisfied clients.
Jonathan started his own property finance practice back in 2007 just before the onset of the financial crisis of 2008. Although this was undoubtedly a challenging period, Jonathan managed to win runner up awards at the 2009 & 10 British Mortgage Awards for “Best Young Mortgage Broker." Sharing a synergy with Alex and growing his practice organically, the two businesses were merged in 2016 to create a unique business that blends decades of experience with a modern way to approach personal financial services. Jonathan has worked within the financial services & property industry since 2001.
Andrew is our Chartered Financial Planner and joined the practice in 2015 to develop our Wealth Management service. Like Alex, he came from an Accountancy background and, after a period of extensive travel, started his career in financial services in 1995.
Since then Andrew has acquired a wealth of experience advising individual private clients and small businesses on all financial matters. He is a member of the Chartered Insurance Institute and Personal Finance Society and is very proud to have achieved Chartered status in 2011.
Andrew advises on the key areas of holistic financial planning, investments, taxation, retirement planning, and all aspects of property finance. He is also qualified to advise on ‘Final Salary’ pension schemes.
