People fail to plan, not plan to fail.
This is as true today as it was when I started in Financial Services, back in 1987. I passionately believe in Financial Planning and with all the technology available to people today, this can create more questions than answers. Face to face advice is as important today, as it has always been, in an ever changing financial world.

When Will and I started Bankhouse back in January 2004, it was based on providing a face to face service to our clients. Our motto has always been "Modern thinking and traditional values".

The starting point to any good client relationship is the ability to listen to their needs and aspirations and our ability to highlight aspects that they may not have thought about. Bankhouse will then create a plan that helps towards satisfying those needs and achieving our client's goals.

This philosophy has helped us create long standing relationships and trust with our clients and in many cases we are now helping our client's children!

I specialise in:
• Preserving wealth
• Protecting family wealth and loved ones
• Inheritance Tax (IHT) planning
• Investment management
• Retirement planning advice
• Long Term Care planning
My clients include:
• Small business owners and entrepreneurs
• Individuals at or near retirement
• High-net worth individuals
• Partners of Accountancy and Solicitor firms
• Trustees

I am married to Lizzie and we have three grown up daughters, Sam, Charlotte and Hollie. We have two lively Dalmatians called Rio and Raffa (who are very much a part of BHFM!) and we have two cats that we rescued, Mr Bumble and Mr Tibbs.
