Email. andrew.blackburnopenwork.uk.com
I have worked as a personal and corporate financial planner for over 25 years and have a wealth of experience in all aspects of financial advice. I see my key role as identifying client’s future financial and life goals and helping them achieve those goals.

Unless a client very clearly requires just a one off service or piece of advice I see my role as long term providing regular and structured planning advice to ensure that clients meet and exceed their goals.
