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”.
Caroline is our Office Manager having joined the firm in April 2011. She has many years of experience in administration and office management. Caroline is an invaluable member of the Team.
Obi (named after the famed Jedi Knight) joined the firm in June 2016 and his positive impact on the rest of the team was immediate. Although his obvious strengths are looking cute and tail wagging, he devotes much of his day tending to various squeaky toys.
The last adviser i had was very friendly and easy going but i felt that i made most of the decisions , Howard is also very easy to get on with but has come up with suggestions that fit with my plan.I like to feel that my advisor is listening to me and then together we can agree on the best way forward, i have found Howard very good in this respect.
I found Paul not to be pushy and explained the various options we could have with full illustrations. He always had plenty of time for our questions.Would 100% recommend him.
Howard Bullock, explains the whole process in a language I understand without using too much jargon. He is completely transparent when it comes to charges for the work they do. He is super efficient and paperwork is completed immediately and should I have a query I just email and I am met with an answer straight away.
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 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.
When, like me, your investment knowledge is limited the first things you want from an IFA is someone whose honesty, experience and advice you feel you can trust. If after that you get to like them as a person who shares similar values with you, as I have and do, then the association should prove to be fruitful. I recommended Paul to both my sons when they needed mortgage advice and would not hesitate to recommend him to others.
