I am an Independent Financial Adviser based in London – both the City and South East London. I am also a Chartered Financial Planner which is a widely accepted "gold standard” for financial advisers in the United Kingdom.
I enjoy listening wholeheartedly to what is important to my clients so I can help design a solution to meet their deeper (financial) needs - be it financial independence, integrity, safety & security or any other. A successful financial plan helps you live your values. Does yours?
My clients include working professionals that want to delegate their investment management, retired or semi-retired individuals who want to enjoy financial freedom with an income-focused portfolio/who want help with pension drawdown. A generous percentage of my client base tends to be women who enjoy the connection & working with a female financial advisor.
Top desires of my clients include to feel more empowered and understand how investments and pensions work. Also, to delegate the management of their finances so they can spend more time focusing on their job and family. Since I specialise in ethical investing, some clients primary motivation is to build an investment portfolio in line with their core values.
Besides investment advice, I care deeply about liberating people to have freedom in their relationship with money. I can also talk non-stop about Nonviolent Communication. Don't try me on that last one!
