At work

After 16 years as a maths teacher, Tim made the decision to train as a Financial Planner. As our Financial Planning Assistant, Tim provides administration, research and general assistance to enable our financial planning process to run smoothly. He works closely with Dan to assist in the day-to-day running of the company, and also monitors and manages our team members’ workloads to ensure timely completion of work. Tim loves working as part of our friendly team, helping others, the thrill of a new challenge and a chance to learn new things.

At play

Tim is married and has two school-age daughters. Outside work, Tim loves outdoor activities including sports, walking and camping. You can also often find him reading, cooking good food, binge-watching Netflix, enjoying meals with friends, running, and enjoying family days out.
