Why no tie?

Posted by siteadmin on Friday 19th September 2014.

I’m a father of two, a motorsports fan and a financial planner with an office in the lovely Middlesex village of Pinner.

Over the next few months I’ll be sharing my thoughts, observations and ideas about the importance of planning your finances for life and my general musings.

If you are wondering why the blog is called ‘Ties are optional’ let me shed some light on it for you.

I’ve been a financial planner for nearly twenty five years and during that time the industry has changed a heck of a lot.

We’ve had the internet speed everything up and make a mountain of information (both accurate and inaccurate) available within a few clicks.

The industry has gone through a tough time with the worst recession in living history and with many financial institutions’ reputations being damaged badly and in some cases irreparably.

A lot of trust and indeed respect seems to have been lost by the public when it comes to dealing with us ‘money men or women’.

So again I hear you ask ‘What’s that got to do with ties?’
