Peter has gone above and beyond the minimum level of qualifications needed to act as a financial adviser, demonstrating Peter’s professionalism and desire to provide the very best financial advice to his clients.
He has always believed in the benefits of specialisation and therefore focuses on dealing with three core groups of clients; Business owners, senior executives and people five to 10 years away from retirement. All of who benefit not only from his financial knowledge, but also his tax planning skills, a combination which produces better outcomes for all his clients.
