At work

Our Director and Financial Planner, Fotis, has worked in financial services for more than 20 years.

He specialises in working with families, retirees, business owners, widows and divorcees.

Highly qualified and highly recommended, Fotis’ passion is helping our clients to live the lifestyle they want, when they want, without worrying about money. That end goal, achieving financial peace of mind for our clients, is Fotis’ driving force.

At home

Family is extremely important to Fotis. He lives in Petts Wood and is married to Faye. They have two young children. They enjoy days out and holidays with family and friends, making memories for their children. The family love visiting Suffolk and Norfolk here in the UK, as well as Spain and Fotis’ native Cyprus abroad.

Fotis is an avid football fan and a season ticket holder at Tottenham Hotspur. To keep fit, he enjoys jogging around Petts Wood a few times a week.

The important stuff

All regulated financial advisers must be authorised by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) and therefore appear on their register. You can find Fotis’ entry here.

Furthermore, all advisers must have an up-to-date Statement of Professional Standing (SPS). This shows they are suitably qualified and have carried out the required amount of Continuous Professional Development (CPD). You should be wary of any advisers who refuse to provide copies of their SPS. You can click here to view Fotis’.
