Neil, a founding director of 80Twenty, has over 25 years of experience in financial services.
Neil began his career with a small life office, initially working in sales and marketing before progressing into a managerial role. He has always believed passionately that specialist advice should be delivered by experts; and created dedicated teams to deliver specialist services well before the requirement for standardised qualifications was introduced. He built further on this fundamental belief when he entered the independent advice arena in the 1990s which culminated with the creation of 80Twenty Consultancy a few years later. Neil continues to head the business and, if you speak to him, you’ll find he feels his belief in highly qualified advisers providing specialist advice is more relevant today than it has ever been.
Neil himself holds a whole host of professional qualifications covering areas such as pensions, taxation and trusts, retirement options and savings and investment, placing him far ahead of the new minimum level that has applied since 2012.
Not all of Neil’s choices have proven successful; he is an avid supporter of Notts County Football Club!
