Get to know Freddie

I joined Flying Colours in April 2022 as a Paraplanner and have since progressed to become a Trainee Financial Adviser in addition to my Paraplanning role. My role is varied and includes arranging meetings between our advisers and potential new clients, shadowing and being trained by Billy Ambler as part of my Financial Adviser training and completing the research and reports for new and existing clients.

I’m aiming to become a Financial Adviser with Flying Colours over the next 12-18 months.

Outside of work

Outside of work, I prioritise spending time with my partner and our daughter. I regularly train Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu & MMA and I thoroughly enjoy cooking a rib-eye steak. Any other spare time is spent studying, reading a book or the Financial Times, or the gym!

What do love about your job?
I love speaking to new and existing clients and helping them achieve their goals. I enjoy shadowing and being trained by my highly knowledgeable and experienced colleagues.
What do you love about Flying Colours?
I love that Flying Colours are innovative in the financial planning profession. We’re always working on how we can optimise and improve the client process and experience, all whilst maintaining high standards and providing top quality financial advice.
Absolute loves
My daughter, jiu-jitsu, reading, steak, red wine, the beach, Italy.
Pet hates
Noisy eaters!
