Get to know David

I have spent many years living and working abroad, establishing businesses in the financial services industry in different jurisdictions.

For the last 10 years I’ve been based in the UK, working with a range of clients who all have different aspirations and plans.

My approach is to listen carefully to my clients, to understand what they want to achieve in their lives. I then help them to make the decisions (which are not just financial) to help them achieve the life they want; that might be for retirement but could be for any stage in their lives.

Outside of work

In my own time, I enjoy life with my ever-changing and flourishing family, and undertake voluntary work within the heritage and conservation sectors.

What do you love about Flying Colours?
Over the years I’ve grown to appreciate the broad diversity of possibilities that are available to individuals. I relish the chance to make a positive difference to peoples’ lives by helping them understand the opportunities that exist, the issues they might face and how to overcome them.
Absolute loves
Early mornings on Dartmoor, sunsets in the desert
Pet hates:
Wasting time, lack of patience, insincerity
