Andrew Smith, Financial Planner
Tel. 01279 874480
I believe in building longstanding relationships and implementing then maintaining a sound Financial Master Plan. This is achieved by engaging in Life Centred Financial Planning. My purpose is to help you achieve the best life possible with the money you have.

I am a member of the CII, the PFS and have also been ISO 22222 certified since the 20th September 2013, certified by Standards International based in the UK. I first worked in financial services in 1991 for David Smith Associates, a family business. I took over from David in December 1999.

When I am not working, if I am not doing something with my family, I am a keen international and local rugby union supporter and also enjoy scuba diving both abroad and in the UK.
