Get to know Jon
I co-founded Flying Colours with Guy back in 2014, with a vision to disrupt the financial advice industry in the same way that our previous firm, Octopus Investments, did with investment management.
I have a very hands-on role in the business, dividing my time between talking to members of the team, working on the business strategy, and developing the systems and processes required to deliver our company’s vision.
Outside of work
I’m a father of four, which means I probably get about 30 minutes of downtime per week, but outside of work I really enjoy cooking.
When I was a teenager, my stepdad (a chef) used to cook me a second dinner after the standard nuggets and chips I’d have with my younger sisters earlier in the evening, and I think that sparked a passion in me.
I particularly love cooking for other people and seeing them enjoy it – not an experience I get often given my youngest two children are particularly fussy!
I also love playing golf, another hobby I picked up as a teenager.
