What do you do?
I started Investor Profile in 2008 because there was a lack of choice in financial advice for people with relatively simple needs, who wanted advice and help but at a lower cost. So I created a company that could provide low cost financial advice and wealth management services, in a convenient way for people all over the UK.
We now specialise in helping people improve their finances as we simplify, consolidate and make sense of their money and their investments so it's easier to understand what their money can do for them. Specifically, I help people to get a grip on their money and to invest in a way that works for their own personal needs.
Essentially I listen, advise, chat, counsel and encourage people.

Why do you do it?
I like helping people make the most of their money and earnings. I love that I can use my experience of talking to thousands of people over the past 20 years and feed that into a strategy for someone that will benefit from what others have learned.
I've always wanted to be well qualified for my role as an expert for our clients to trust, so I sat exams - lots of them. As a result, I am a Chartered Financial Planner, Chartered Wealth Manager and Certified Financial Planner, as well as holding the Investment Management Certificate.
I started working in financial advice in 2000 and was lucky enough to work for some of the very best in the UK, who I am sure had a big hand in my winning awards from Money Management, Scottish Widows and Unbiased over the years.
What do you do outside of work?
I spend most of my time with my wife, Pushpinder, and two daughters. Having moved house in 2020 I also spend a lot of time gardening or on DIY, but I do also enjoy cooking when I have the time. I love seeing new places and taking my camera with me, but I've got so much more to learn about photography before I get some really good photos to share! I love sports - football, cricket, golf, F1 - pretty much anything really. I support Tottenham with a passion and believe we can win the league one day!
