David Cummins has 25 years of experience advising private individuals and their families on their financial plans and is a Chartered Financial Planner, which is recognised as the ‘gold standard’ for financial advice in the UK.

He is a hugely experienced financial planner who has advised individuals and their families in Kent and the South East for many years and will spearhead the growth of our financial planning business in Kent. The radical shake-up of pensions being introduced next year means there has never been a more important time for people to seek high quality, professional advice on their financial plans and that underpins our ambitious plans to double the size of our financial planning team over the coming months.”
