Jack Shipley has been a Paraplanner at Amicus Wealth since he joined in 2016. He supports for all Senior Advisers and Associate directors with submission and preparation of clients financial documents and enjoys the interaction with advisers that comes with it, and in some cases meets with clients. He thrives in the relaxed and jovial culture in the office and fully enjoys the banter that comes with it. In his spare time he loves watching Arsenal football team and going to see DJs. Although Jacks ultimate aim is to become a financial adviser, he would also love to be a house music DJ himself.

He has run several events across the country in conjunction with The CALM charity to promote this.

Emily is the Head of Operations at Amicus Wealth and also paraplanner to Managing Director, David Fry. When she’s not at work she loves nothing more than to spend time with friends, whether it be cooking or making the most of what London has to offer. This is why her favourite thing about Amicus Wealth is the social culture. Emily has been with Amicus since the start and has helped the Amicus brand become what it is today.

“Financial planning can be at best complicated and at worst intimidating. By being approachable, clear and efficient, I aim to demystify so we arrive at the best solution.”

Annabel is a Financial and Mortgage Advisor with an Advanced Diploma. Her specialisms are Defined Benefit Transfers and Mortgages. Annabel is well renowned for her supportive and thorough approach. She is also a regular contributor to the Money section of The Independent, meaning many of us have benefited from her sound advice.

Annabel has a real passion for learning. She is currently working towards chartered status and believes that good old-fashioned knowledge is how she can truly offer her clients the very best service. This tenacity goes beyond her work and into her favourite hobby, cycling. She also loves baking and being outdoors with her family.

“Taking advantage of available reliefs and allowances are key to maximising any financial plan.”

Claudia is an Associate Director of Amicus Wealth. Her focus is based on building and maintaining long term, trusted relationships with her clients. She understands that each client needs individual solutions to their problems and feels that her pragmatic approach ensures her advice is easy for clients to understand, relevant to the times and in line with their specific goals and objectives. Out of the office, Claudia loves the outdoors, enjoys winter sports and has a keen interest in motor racing.

“I encourage all my clients to get into good habits early – protect and save early for a better financial future.”

George is an Associate Director at Amicus Wealth. An advocate of putting plans in place as early as possible, he is motivated by seeing clients take control of their finances, protecting and building for whatever their future holds. When not delivering great value and supporting clients, he is a keen sportsman, whether that is on the football field, golfing green or cricket pitch.

“Taking the right advice does not need to be rushed. When piecing together a larger plan the smaller decisions need to be the right ones. Detailed explanations and clear understanding underpin good ongoing advice.”

Ben is an Associate Director of Amicus Wealth, with an MA from the University of Edinburgh. His passion professionally lies in establishing great relationships with his clients. He feels that his honest and dependable advice provides clients with the ongoing support they need to make the best financial decisions. Out of the office, Ben tries to watch as much live music and football as possible. He prides himself on being one of the most patient Arsenal fans over the past few years.

“Financial planning can be complex, and everyone’s situation is different; never be afraid to ask for help.”

Ryan is an Associate Director at Amicus Wealth and has worked in Wealth Management since 2011. Bermudian-born, his passion for the business comes from knowing that every person who comes through the door to see him leaves better informed about their finances. He appreciates that reviewing and considering one’s own financial planning may not always be as high on the priority list as perhaps it should, but by working closely with his client’s he is able to relieve them of this pressure and provide them with peace of mind. Outside of the financial world, he loves being outdoors – cricket in the summer, rugby in the winter, with a claim to fame of a handful of caps for the powerhouse that is the Bermuda rugby 7s team.

“At the end of the day, you need to feel comfortable with and to able to trust the adviser you choose to work with."

Rachel is an Associate Director with an AF3 Advanced Diploma. A ‘true Yorkshire lass’, she has broken through the enigma of the financial adviser industry being stuffy, backdated and dominated by men. She saw a great opportunity within Amicus Wealth to break this mould and work with like-minded ambitious individuals who want to apply their life skills to their career.

She graduated from Oxford University with a Masters in Chemistry. Although she loved working in science and admittedly is the geek of the company, she knew that a career working with the marriage of people and numbers best suited her.

The best advice she gives to her clients is; to keep it simple! She’s known for using language we all understand, uncomplicated by financial jargon and ultimately helping her clients draw the parallels between their financial planning, their lifestyle and their personal success and happiness. Her client relationships are based on trust and open and honest advice. Having grown up with a menagerie of animals, including her old pony Bounty, Rachel tries to spend as much time on the farm horse riding.

“With legislation hamstringing many clients, it’s important to take advice to find out what allowances are available to you and to make the most of them.”

Hailing from North Norfolk and a farming background, Richard isn’t afraid to get his hands dirty but was always heading towards the city for a career having studied economics at university. He started as a financial adviser in 2009 after travelling over ground from Kenya to Cape Town then to New Zealand and Australia, watching a lot of live sport along the way.

He enjoys meeting clients from different industries, backgrounds and circumstances, tailoring advice according to each situation and client. Having the opportunity to change his clients’ lives for the better, adapt to changing economic conditions and making the most of the frequent legislation changes. He enjoys building long term relationships with his clients based on solid, honest advice.

The most important piece of advice that he gives his clients is to be proactive and get cracking sooner rather than later; the first step is usually the hardest. Richard describes the Amicus culture as “an ambitious, progressive, professional and fun environment with everyone pulling together towards a common goal. We all greatly enjoy the team spirit in the office”. As well as being a keen woodworker he also enjoys skiing, social cricket, very social golf and hosting dinner parties.

“There has never been a more important time to keep on top of your finances – things are changing faster than ever.”

Gethin is an Associate Director at Amicus Wealth. His passion is helping his clients achieve their personal idea of financial success - whether that means giving their children a deposit for a house, or being able to stop working. He believes this attitude is part of Amicus Wealth culture, a company where individuals genuinely care about doing the best thing. When not helping clients, Welshman Gethin loves to watch Wales win rugby games.

“My most important piece of advice is very, very simple: have a plan!”

Wilfred is an Associate Director at Amicus Wealth. Recognizing that every client’s goals are as individual and varied as they are, his passion for the industry lies in helping people achieve whatever is important to them in life. Something he says is made possible by the client-led and refreshingly honest culture at Amicus Wealth. And, on the subject of honesty, while Wilfred’s main love in his spare time is sports, he also admits to having tried his hand as an actor in years gone by.

“It is important to ensure that you and your family are properly protected against all future scenarios.”

Matt is an Associate Director at Amicus Wealth. His passion lies in helping clients to achieve their life goals, knowing he can help them reach a better position from a planning and financial point of view. He believes regular contact and thoroughly understanding a client’s requirements are the keys to building a long term trusted relationship. Having grown up in Cheltenham, he is naturally also a horseracing fan, with a good eye for a winner.

“Achieving your long-term goals becomes easier the sooner you make the decision to take control of your finances.”

Michael is an Associate Director at Amicus Wealth, with a degree in Business Economics. Describing Amicus Wealth as dynamic, motivational and different to a typical corporate environment, his passion is the opportunity to adapt together with his clients throughout their career. In his personal time, Michael enjoys family time and flexing his culinary skills – though don’t ask him for holiday advice, as he notoriously got sunburnt in the rain.

“The ever-changing landscape of the financial world creates a minefield of rules and regulations. Regular reviews are essential to keep abreast of the situation and make sure your finances are kept in the best possible shape.”

Christopher is a Co-Founder and Director at Amicus Wealth and has worked in Financial Services since 2007 with a degree in Business Economics. He is motivated by developing long-term relationships with his clients and believes positive changes in the industry are helping everyone receive fair, cost-effective, ongoing advice. In his private time he balances his interest in sport with his enthusiasm for good food and wine.

“The first step is the hardest. Once you’ve made this, executing your financial plan becomes a lot easier.”

Chris is a Co-Founder and Director at Amicus Wealth and has worked in Financial Services since 2008. His passion is building genuine, trusting relationships with new and existing clients, helping them achieve their personal objectives in the most tax efficient and cost-effective way. People are often apprehensive when it comes to talking about finances, but he believes one of the most important factors is putting the client at ease and giving them total control of their decisions having been fully informed of all their options. Having first-hand experience in the industry, Chris is now aware of what an important role advisers play in the professional lives of busy people. A fluent French speaker, when he’s not talking to clients he enjoys the joie de vivre with his family and friends.

“Financial planning is becoming increasingly complex due to the current political and economic situation. My advice is always to start planning early and understand what allowances are available to you”

David is the Managing Director of Amicus Wealth, with over ten years’ financial experience. He cofounded the company with a passion to create something special in the industry, and is inspired by the opportunity to create the best possible solution for every client by linking the right financial products to each individual situation. Having abandoned his surf bum aspirations many years ago, when he’s not spending time with the company, his wife or friends he still catches the occasional wave.
