I am a Salford university graduate with a BA in popular music and recording. I have 12 years experience in office administration and I have been working at Callisto for 6 years now. I have passed the FA1 exam in Life & Protection administration and I am currently studying the FA2 Pensions Administration exam. I have also sang and played guitar in a number of bands, performing both covers and original music. The highlight of my musical ventures was a full UK tour with Manchester based rock band Hell to Pay and the opportunity to support my own guitar hero – Paul Gilbert (Mr Big). I am currently working with a wedding and corporate events group across the Northwest while working towards life office qualifications. In my spare time I support Saints RLFC and Liverpool FC and try to keep myself fit.
I graduated from the University of Central Lancashire after studying Theatre and Performance. I also work part time in a pub on weekends and evenings. I am a mum to 2 young children which keep me very busy. In my spare time I like to read, socialize and go to on caravan holidays in Wales with my children and husband. I am currently studying the FA2 pensions administration exam at the moment.
Meet Our Partner
Tim graduated from the University of Oxford and holds an MBA from Cranfield School of Management. After a few years with Standard Chartered in Hong Kong working in Corporate Banking, he moved into the investment world, spending almost a decade at Chase Asset Management (now part of JP Morgan Asset Management) in a number of roles in London, Hong Kong and New York.
Driven by his experience of the difficulties that many investors faced trying to invest sensibly, he set up Albion Strategic Consulting in 2001, which has forged a niche working with a small group of high quality financial planning firms in the UK helping them to establish and manage a robust, risk-focused and low cost, passive approach to investing for their wealthy clients.
Tim’s book, Smarter Investing: Simpler Decisions for Better Results was first published in 2006 by FT Prentice Hall, and the third edition was published in early October this year.
He lives in Devon with his wife and two young daughters and enjoys the moors, the beaches, and cycling in the South West. He can sometimes be spotted on his paddle board in the Exe estuary heading for a sun-downer at one of the waterside hostelries.
