I am a writer and blogger with decades of experience in finance, investment and education.

I have been involved in pensions for over 30 years. After graduating from the London School of Economics in Mathematical Economics and Econometrics, my first job was in Pensions Administration with Sun Life. After a stint at the aero engineer Rolls-Royce, I have spent almost three decades in investment and finance, which has included sitting on corporate retirement committees and passing all relevant regulatory exams.

Over that time people have increasingly sought me out to learn more about personal finance and investing. I firmly believe that personal finance doesn’t have to be difficult or complicated and it certainly doesn’t have to be intimidating.

Pensions by Candlelight Dinners

Pensions by Candlelight is the new, safe and friendly way to learn about pensions and personal finance.

You won’t be browbeaten into buying a pension or charged thousands of pounds for advice. And you certainly won’t be turned away if you have less than £100,000 to invest as happens with many financial advisors.

Instead you’ll have the key elements of personal finance explained to you in jargon-free and relaxed manner. You’ll be able to ask all the questions you like over a delicious three-course private dining experience. There is no such thing as a stupid question. Everyone benefits when you ask the question you might be afraid to ask of a financial advisor.

If you would like to learn how to take control of your finances, or would simply like to feel better prepared before you speak to a financial advisor, come dine with us. You won’t regret it.
