Get to know Colin

I have been in the financial services industry since 1984 and paraplanning since 2005. I joined Flying Colours in March 2020, just as the UK went into the first Covid lockdown and my first few months with the company was spent working from home. My role requires a thorough understanding of the financial advice process and adherence to all compliance requirements, good written skills, and attention to detail.

Outside of work

Spending time with my family generally and watching my son play guitar at gigs with his band.
