I left the RAF Regiment in 1985 and joined the life assurance industry before becoming a financial planner. I started Wade Financial in 1987 and helped grow the company to be listed in the top 100 Financial Times financial planning firms, all the way through to a successful sale. I am a speaker and coach and an author of a book about how to build a successful IFA business whilst using lifetime cash flow planning.
Family is extremely important to me, and my wife and four children have been at the center of everything I work for. I am a UEFA B football coach and run a women’s football team. I am now the Chairman of West Allotment Celtic FC; a semi-professional club. I am also the secretary and trustee of West Allotment Juniors which is a registered charity.
