Our people are very important to us, as is making certain we provide you with the best possible professional financial advice. Below is a short biography for each of our colleagues together with their contact telephone number. For further contact details please see our "Contact Us" page.
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

My clients include:
• Small business owners and entrepreneurs

I am married to Lizzie and we have three grown up daughters, Sam, Charlotte and Hollie. We have a lively Dalmatian called Rio (who is very much a part of BHFM!) and we have two cats that we rescued, Mr Bumble and Mr Tibbs.
I really enjoy what I do, and particularly like being able to help clients overcome financial problems, improve their situation and plan for a financially secure future for them and their families. I passionately believe in traditional face to face financial planning but also using modern technology to help achieve those goals and needs.
I advise on all areas of Financial Planning for individuals, families or businesses and work with a number of professional connections including solicitors and accountants.
