Local Independent Financial Adviser takes to the skies in the name of charity

A few weeks on from the most hair-raising experience of my life, it’s time to reflect on why completing a skydive for the British Heart Foundation meant so much to me personally and professionally.

The exhilaration of freefalling at 150 mph was an incredible experience and really helped me overcome a deep-seated fear of heights.

I was so pleased to raise an incredible £3,700 (before Gift Aid is added) for this charity in memory of my brother, who died of heart disease a few years ago. He was just short of his 50th birthday.

Our family’s experience of losing Stuart really crossed over to my professional line of work as an Independent Financial Adviser with Abacus Associates.

My experience of helping people arrange their wills is often greeted initially with the words ‘it will never happen to me.’ The same response often crops up when helping my clients protect their families or when they plan to mitigate inheritance tax or long-term care costs. My family know it can happen and does happen to people at any age.

I am now even more passionate about helping individuals and families protect their financial futures and have over 15 years’ experience of helping clients in Whitchurch and Llandaff meet their financial goals.
