Antony is an Independent Financial Adviser, specialising in looking after business owners, senior employees and retired people. He also works with those that have accumulated wealth but don’t have the time or experience to invest it well. With more than 15 years’ experience in financial services, he has a wealth of knowledge, providing our clients with the service they deserve.
Despite being no longer able to jump, run, catch or pass (his words, not ours!), Antony loves playing basketball. Making that one special play a game gives him the buzz he needs to keep on playing. He loves to watch a boxset with a glass of red wine. When he’s not watching Netflix, you can find Antony heading to the theatre, the cinema or planning his next holiday.
Antony is again a proud finalist in the Independent Financial Adviser of the Year category at the Yorkshire Financial Advice Awards in 2023, having been shortlisted in the same category in 2022 and has been listed as a VouchedFor top-rated adviser each year for the last 5 years.
What others say about Antony
I received excellent independent advice at a difficult time in my life, and am continuing to work with Antony to ensure that my wishes and financial requirements are dealt with in a tax efficient manner.
Antony has proved to be very understanding of our financial planning needs. He has consistently shown full empathy for us and has given full support to us in all aspects of our investments and pension/drawdown planning.
Antony very quickly understood our financial position and attitude to investment and risk. He offers sound practical advice that we feel reflects our long-term aspirations and this gives us great reassurance for the future.

My proudest moment as a Financial Planner was
None of my clients cashed in their investments in a panic during the pandemic related market falls in March 2020 – I hope in part this was due to the trust in the calm advice I gave around that time.

People that are positive and cup half full. People that are open-minded. People that are comfortable in their own skin.
