“I believe a trusted adviser should be creative, show initiative, act diligently and respect others’ values. I always strive to help clients grow their own knowledge – to give them greater clarity and peace of mind about the decisions they make and support them at every step from visualising to achieving their personal goals – using their finances to make the most of their lives.”
