Meet the team
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 trained to 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 by helping business owners, individuals and families gain a better understanding of their existing financial position and advising them on 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 he has to his name in Billericay and much further afield. Paul’s 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, and in 2010, Paul was invited to join Clear Financial Advice. He describes the firm as a perfect fit for his ever-evolving skill set, as, in his own words, the firm offers a “pragmatic, logical and friendly approach that mirrors my own”.
Kayleigh has worked in the Financial Service industry since 2009 and joined the firm in 2018 as an experienced Paraplanner. She works closely with Howard and Paul in the delivery of advice to our clients. Kayleigh is also an integral member of the Firm’s Due Diligence and Investment Committee.
Caroline joined the firm in April 2011 and is our Office Manager. She has many years of experience in administration and office management and has since become an invaluable member of the team.

Obi – named after the famed Jedi Knight – joined the firm in June 2016 and immediately had a hugely positive impact on the rest of the team! Although his obvious strengths are wagging his tail and looking cute, he devotes much of his day tending to various squeaky toys.
