  • Welcome from Kent

    A warm welcome to the Kent regional committee page from me, James Cole, and the rest of your regional committee.  I have lived and worked in the county since 2002; some of you may remember me from BDM roles with Standard Life and Aegon in years past.  Today I am MD at Talis IFA in Ashford where I manage my own client bank alongside a growing team of advisers, paraplanners and support staff.  I am acutely aware of the challenges and opportunities we all face and pleased to play my small part as an advocate for our profession.
