I have a vital role to play when it comes to managing our clients’ portfolios. I dedicate a large amount of time researching asset allocation, portfolio diversification, correlation and investment strategies to match our client’s objectives and attitude to investment risk. 

I have been working in the financial industry since 1999 and I have developed the risk management tools and portfolio design for managing your investments.  

As the company is very active in managing our client portfolios it gives me a sense of achievement to see how well our client portfolios are performing. 

I have been an IMD (Investment Management Diploma) holder through CFA UK since 2022, after obtaining the IMC in 2021 and the CFA Institutes Certificate in ESG Investing in 2022. I also hold the Diploma in Financial Advice (DipFA) through the London Institute of Banking and Finance (LIBF) since 2013, as well as obtaining the level 6 Managing Investment qualification also through the LIBF in 2017.

As Operations Manager, I oversee the daily operations of the company which includes providing accounting and administration services and developing systems and processes ensuring they are efficient, lean and precise whether relating to systems, compliance or service.

As a stickler for detail, I ensure all the financial reporting is correct for Tristan to meet with the Hartey Wealth Management Board and FCA regulatory requirements. I also work within the Client Services Team, which is very important to me, as it keeps me involved with our clients and in the practical application of the processes and systems that have been put in place.

I have worked within financial services for the last 15 years, although mainly from the fund provider side of the table. I joined the Client Service Team in May 2018 and have found my previous experience in the industry really beneficial as I know how lots of the platforms and fund providers work.

I enjoy being challenged and busy, following through with any client requests, applications or enquiries I receive – I like to be as involved with our clients as I can be. My aim is to provide the best level of customer service to our clients that I can.
