James Rossington BSc (Hons) Dip PFS – Independent Financial Adviser

James has worked in the insurance, pensions and advice sectors of financial services since 2005. He specialises in a values based approach to advice working with clients to not only achieve specific landmarks and financial targets, but understand what is really important to them and how he can put this at the centre of their lifetime planning strategy.
