Be prepared to hear about our key team member called Farley, the Labrador Retriever.
He first arrived into the family as a 'Guide Dogs for the Blind' puppy but didn’t quite make their grade.
Quite a story, involving Emma hood-winking Ian into having a puppy, then Ian keeping Farley after Guide Dogs asked if we would take him back!
Farley is the office's team official stamp-licker, guest-greeter, and foot-warmer, and doesn't mind being the centre of attention if guests insist...
About Ian Francis
Ian has been married to Emma, his best friend, tireless listener, and greatest encourager, for twenty years.
He has three sons, three grandsons, and enjoys his family time, food, wine, rugby, and walking Farley.
With having spent over 30 years involved with financial services, in many senior roles including independent financial advice and regulation, Ian is well placed to give high-quality advice on all sorts of problems.
In addition to a wide range of qualifications, accreditations, and professional memberships, Ian has also passed specialist exams for equity release and long-term care advice.
We are all a team in the office, working together to help all our clients get the best service and support, solving our client's problems, and making their lives financially happier.
About Emma Francis
Emma manages the office & team in Bassingham, guarding all that goes on!
Having already cycled in northern India to raise money for women’s cancer charities, Emma's next expedition for the same charities will be in Sri Lanka.
A proud mum, nanny (and very lucky wife), and talented artist, the world rightly revolves around Emma.
Being the lead team member you will usually hear Emma answer the phone and make any visitor most welcome.
