At work

He formerly worked in the wealth management sector with one of the UK’s most prestigious and well-known private banks and is one of only approximately 1,200 individuals in the UK who holds both the Chartered Wealth Manager and Certified Financial Planner qualifications.

Duncan works with those people who, in their 50s and 60s, want to make work optional and change the balance of their lives. He also works with those people who have already retired.
