Meet Julie Wilson
Julie is our Director. A Chartered Financial Planner, she has decades of experience; particularly in Inheritance Tax planning.
Julie’s accolades and accreditations speak for themselves. She is a Fellow of the Personal Finance Society, which is the highest professional qualification available in the UK. She also holds the prestigious Chartered Financial Planner accreditation and has a degree in Financial Planning. Finally, Julie holds the ISO22222 Certification; the internationally recognised kite mark for professional financial advisers.
With a business to run, Julie’s spare time is somewhat limited. Her interests are her business!
If she does have any time to spare, she loves to travel.
The important stuff
All regulated financial advisers firms must be authorised by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) and therefore appear on their register. You can find PenLife’s entry here.
Furthermore, all advisers must have an up-to-date Statement of Professional Standing (SPS). This shows they are suitably qualified. You should be wary of any advisers who refuse to provide copies of their SPS. If you wish to see any copies, you can request this over the phone or via email using the information on the Contact Us page.
Mr and Mrs Jackson
Reluctant to pay fees
Mr and Mrs Jackson sought our help four years after their initial meeting. They had, initially, been reluctant to pay our fees. However, our planning ultimately enabled them to avoid a huge tax bill, which completely overshadowed the cost of our services.Read more
"Julie understood our thoughts and attitudes towards financial planning brilliantly. As ever, she came up with suggestions which suited our needs and our approach to financial matters. She put us totally at ease about embarking on new investments."
"Julie just 'gets it'. She is simply a straight-talking, no-nonsense adviser with a great deal of knowledge. The perfect combination."
