Meet Leon Kemplay
Leon joined PenLife in 2015 where he completed an advanced apprenticeship and has since risen through the ranks to become a qualified financial planner. He advised PenLife clients for two years and has now since gone back to University studying Politics, Philosophy and Economics. He now works as a part-time administrator, providing training and support to the rest of the team
Helping people with money and all of the complexities surrounding it really gives him a kick as he saw the true impact of poor financial planning during his childhood and how this can affect all aspects of people’s lives. His aim is to help as many people from all walks of life make sense of their finances and build a better relationship with their money.
Leon is now currently living in Leeds with his partner Ebony who is studying Law and hopes to be a Solicitor. Leon’s main interest is football; he’s a keen supporter of Grimsby Town and Arsenal, having spent much of his childhood in these two places.
Leon also loves keeping up with Formula One and enjoys spending time with his friends and his partner. He also enjoys keeping fit as he’s part of a military family so keeping up is crucial, with running being his main cup of tea.
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.
