Howard began his career on the London International Financial Futures Exchange (LIFFE), where he worked successfully as a Trader for almost 12 years. When the Exchange closed its trading floor, he decided to pursue a different path and become a Financial Adviser.
His logical and clear approach to financial advice was well received by clients, and so Howard became an Independent Financial Adviser the following year.
He went on to establish Clear Financial Advice in 2006. Always responsive to the needs of his clients, Howard puts his extensive experience to great use helping business owners, individuals and families gain a better understanding of their existing financial position and how best to protect and increase their wealth along the way.
Paul became an Independent Financial Adviser in 1994, having previously worked in Pensions administration for prominent national schemes including The Law Society Retirement Benefits Scheme.
Since then he’s successfully increased his knowledge and experience, and is incredibly proud of the healthy list of long standing clients built in his home town of Billericay, and much further afield. His technical knowledge has also enabled him to build relationships with several Chartered Accountants and Will Writing professionals, meaning he can provide a holistic advice service.
Howard and Paul had been friends for a number of years, when in 2010 Paul was invited to join Clear Financial Advice. He describes the firm as a perfect fit. “Pragmatic, logical and friendly, and approach which mirrors that of my own”.

Howard is very down to earth so you understand what he is telling you and very honest so you know that he is telling you what is best for you and not him!
Paul was recommended to me by a colleague, i am always very guarded when speaking with professional finance people but Paul was very different from the usual, he was extremely helpful, he listened to my needs and offered me lots of different options, he explained everything very thoroughly and always conducted himself very professionally.I trusted him 100% with my financial needs and his advice has put me in a very comfortable position.I have since recommended him to other members of my family and a lot of my friends/business colleagues.I would thoroughly recommend him for all your financial planning needs.
Howard clearly explains to you the reasoning behind his decisions . He is really helpful in assisting you in making the right decisions on investing safely by providing information on fund I choose but also providing alternatives that I might like to think about. He is also proactive in his approach to safeguarding my investments.
We have known Paul for approximately 6 or 7 years and have found him to be very professional and give sound advice. We have always found him to be very approachable and easy to contact with any problems or queries. Would thoroughly recommend him.
Paul provided impartial, honest and considered advice after listening and considering my needs. His advice proved to be accurate, but most importantly he responded when he said he would and did what he said he would do! This is a basic thing – but not often carried out! I would have no hesitation in recommending Paul in the future.
Paul is very easy to talk to,most helpful and always ready to explain fully and queries. I have always been more than pleaseed with his service to me.
