Great Advisors, Great Profession: The Documentary

Later Life Advice (SOLLA)

In this video, Ian Horne from Citywire looks at the value financial advisors bring and the things that prevent people from getting the proper help for all their financial needs. This is a nation of people who need financial advice but don’t seek it.

Karen Barwick as well as being a Chartered Financial Planner is also a specialist in advising older people in financial matters. She has been awarded the Later Life Adviser Accreditation (LLAA) by the Society of Later Life Advisers (SOLLA).
