About the Speakers

As some of Simon’s clients have become more comfortable with their financial position, he has helped them consider the best means of using their excess wealth for philanthropic causes.

Simon loves bringing order and simplicity to his clients’ financial affairs, giving them the peace of mind that we have considered everything that they would otherwise need to think about themselves. His aim is to free up their time to allow them to focus on their own work, families and personal interests.
