Partner & Chartered Financial Planner

Steve Pine CFPTM

Steve is a Certified Financial Planner and a Chartered Financial Planner whose passion is preserving his client's wealth now and for the next generation. His emphasis on long term strategic financial planning in preference to short term issues mean his clients have clarity on how their hard earned cash can best work for them and their loved ones and helps clients feel financially well-organised. His eye for detail and professional qualifications combined with 20 odd years of technical experience in advanced pension work, trustee investment and Power of Attorney advice has proven to be successful in offering real financial direction and peace of mind to clients.

Steve says "I believe financial planners should be well qualified, well informed and transparent in their offering to clients and recent regulatory changes indicate the FCA feel the same way.

I think the practical application of my technical knowledge is enhanced by my own life experiences and this allows me to give real direction to my clients.

Like many of my clients I have a mortgage, second home and school fees to pay. I have experienced both the highs and lows of life, including losing my Dad in 2007 who was also my business partner for 16 years, and I juggle a young family, my business, and a dog!

The financial decisions I have had to make, which include both buying and selling a business, investing money in stocks and shares, owning a commercial property in a SIPP and purchasing buy to lets, helps me understand my clients' financial dilemmas and keep their best interests at the heart of my recommendations."
