Hello, I’m Sam, a diploma qualified independent Equity Release Adviser here at the award-winning Equity Release Supermarket.
I began working in Financial Services back in 2006 and have many years of experience in almost every aspect of the industry.
My interest in the financial services industry came from my Dad, whom I very much look up to, and is also an independent Financial Adviser.
His passion for helping his clients was something that I admired from a young age, how highly he spoke of them, and even more so how highly they spoke of him. I knew from leaving high school that I wanted to follow in his footsteps, so I joined Halifax and trained to be a Financial Adviser.
From then onwards I have dedicated my career to studying, taking exams, and understanding all aspects of this industry so I too can help clients in a way that can often be life changing.
I began specialising in Equity Release in around 2013 and since then I have given personal independent equity release advice to thousands of clients to aid them in realising their goals - whether that be to enhance their retirement; take holidays; make home improvements; financially support their children with an early inheritance; or purchase a new car.
My dedication to my clients and my industry was recognised by being awarded Runner Up Equity Release Adviser of the Year at the British Mortgage Awards in 2018 – an achievement I hold with the upmost sincerity.
Whether you are dipping your toe in the water with Equity Release, want a general chat, or would like full financial advice on the best way forward, I would be more than happy to speak to you without any obligation and help to work out if this is the right way forward for you.
There are no silly questions and I will give you as much time as you need to speak with me. I am here to advise, not to sell you a product. Feel free to contact me so we can discuss your options together.
