With over 25 years’ experience as a financial adviser, and over 20 as the leader of her own firm, Lesley has an impressive depth of experience and knowledge of all aspects of financial services. She is a firm believer that financial security and health and happiness go hand in hand and that a body of advisers dedicated to achieving this for their clients is a fabulous service.
