Ian Poysden, Chairman

I advise on all areas of financial planning, including investments, life assurance & pensions (personal and final salary). I look after both individual & corporate clients and pride myself on explaining things clearly so clients actually understand it – even pensions! I live in Hove, and outside work I enjoy looking after my two young daughters and doing anything sports related, especially hitting golf balls.
