ONE OF the most respected names from Fleet Street has joined David Williams Independent Financial Advisers, as Northamptonshire’s largest IFA firm continues to thrive.

Former financial journalist and Mail on Sunday columnist Stephen Womack has joined the team as a financial planner.

An award-winning writer and a qualified financial adviser, Stephen will be working with clients to help them achieve their financial goals. He will also have a role in marketing and developing new business opportunities for David Williams IFA.

Stephen has lived close to the Northamptonshire/ Leicestershire border since 2000, and has strong personal connections in both counties.

David Sparrow, managing director of David Williams IFA, says: “I am delighted that Stephen has joined us and that someone with his wide experience of financial services can appreciate the value we are adding for clients.”

Stephen says: “It is exciting to be part of David Williams and to be advising clients face-to-face instead of helping them through the pages of the newspaper.

“As a firm of Chartered Financial Planners, David Williams IFA is already operating at the highest level of advisers. Since joining I have been impressed by the commitment to professionalism throughout the firm and by the strong client relationships I have seen.”

Stephen is one of five recent recruits as David Williams IFA continues to deliver a high-quality service to a growing client base of personal and corporate clients.

Ashley Smith joined as a trainee adviser in July having graduated this year with a degree in accountancy and business. Ashley will be supporting director Nick Beal in his client work.

Lynette Douglas, an experienced financial services technician, has come on board as a personal assistant to financial planner Daniel Slack.

And the latest new recruits are Sue King and Annabel Smith, who both joined in August.

Sue has 24 years of experience in financial services and will be supporting director Phillip Cox, while Annabel is personal assistant to mortgage director Tim O’Neill. She will assist him in growing the company’s successful mortgage practice DWIFA Mortgage Services.
