Providing financial advice to customers in Livingston and across West Lothian.


I am an independent financial adviser (IFA) based in Livingston, and I work with clients throughout Scotland. I help my clients make informed decisions about their finances. Whether you are approaching retirement, looking to review existing arrangements, or set up a new plan – I can help.

I am a Chartered Financial Planner, which is the gold standard for advisers in the UK and have worked with hundreds of clients to help them achieve their goals. If you are looking for financial advice, or a conversation to see if it would benefit you, then please get in touch.
