About me...

I have worked for 20 years in financial advice firms, 10 years at the regulator and have now set up my own training and consultancy firm.

In my time at the regulator I became increasingly influential in the way the FCA thought about, and supervised advisers.

Prior to joining the regulator, I worked in financial advisory firms mainly in compliance, training and technical support roles. I have Chartered Financial Planner status with 460 CII credits.
