David has extensive knowledge in all aspects of wealth management and retirement planning having been in the industry for over 25 years.

As the previous head of retirement strategy at a national financial advisory firm, part of his role was to advise the teams round the UK of legislative changes and the impact they would have on their clients. This insight has proved invaluable when dealing with his own personal clients’ needs in an ever changing market.

Other advice areas take in offshore and onshore investments, ISAs, pre and post retirement planning as well corporate pension planning. References from professional connections as well as clients are always available if required.
