What do you like most about working at Acumen Financial Planning?

“I enjoy helping people achieve financial ‘peace of mind’. It’s a phrase often used by clients who have benefited from the planning process that we work through together. It enables clients to relax and enjoy their chosen lifestyle, with the knowledge that they have professional support working with them along the road of our life’s journeys.”

“I coach football, a role I took up to support my son when he started playing football. I enjoy the coaching – it’s taught me a lot about people, both young and old, and the challenges of building good teams.”
