Outside of my business, I am a busy family man due to having 3 young sons, Daniel, Luke, & Harvey. In the little spare time I get I like to keep fit by going to the gym and playing football – I also like to socialise with friends and family.

Charity is also important to me - I give regularly & have participated in many events ranging from a 24 hour fun run to sponsored walks, and I once even walked on fire! (training was provided so please don’t try this at home)

Fundamentally I see my approach as one of problem-solving for the client - rather than product-selling. As a result, my clients can expect to receive the most comprehensive, holistic, and appropriate advice at all times.

The value of an investment with St. James Place's Place will be directly linked to the performance of the funds selected and may fall as well as rise. You may get back less than the amount invested.

The levels and bases of taxation and reliefs from taxation can change at any time. The value of any tax relief depends on individual circumstances.
