James joined Nice Associates, as Adviser in late 2019, and is passionate about helping individuals and businesses achieve their financial dreams and aspirations through personalised, face-to-face financial advice.
Prior to joining the financial services industry, he spent 8 successful years working within digital marketing, specialising in helping Solicitors, Financial Service and E-Commerce companies grow their businesses online.
As a consequence, he has established many working relationships with individuals within this sector due, in part, to the insight and understanding that he has for their specific financial requirements – whether these be personal or corporate.
James is committed to ensuring that his industry knowledge remains relevant and current and places strong emphasis on his personal development. This, along with the pride and dedication that he places on developing solid personal relationships with clients, ensures that he is able to offer a rounded, professional and principled service.
Fundamentally his approach is one of problem-solving for you the client - rather than product-selling. As a result, his clients can always expect to receive the most comprehensive and appropriate advice.
