About Nimesh

With over 20 years’ experience in Financial Services, Nimesh has seen a lot of change in his career. After graduating from Nottingham University, his early career was based in Farnborough and he was one of the founders of Millfield, which grew from a start up to a listed company. After several acquisitions, alongside some other like-minded people he moved on and was a founding Partner of Wardour.

About Phil

Here’s what I do:

I’m a chartered financial planner and have been giving financial advice to private clients since 1989. That means that I’ve built up a lot of experience in advising people with their money and their plans.

I advise a limited number of private clients and take a measured, considered approach with attention to detail.

Here are some of the key questions that I can help with:

  • When will I be able to stop working and how much money will I need?
  • When will the money run out?
  • If I have various investments and pensions when I retire, which ones do I deplete first?
  • How can I pass on my wealth to my children tax efficiently?
  • How can I ensure that if anything happens to me, my family will be ok?

I’ve been told that I’m good at making financial planning sound uncomplicated, so let’s hope they’re right!
