Stephen began his career in Financial Services over 15 years ago.
After graduating from university in 2004, Stephen started out as an administrator at Suffolk Life. He then climbed the ranks at various independent financial advice firms to become a paraplanner. After gaining his professional qualifications, Stephen began Ashworth Financial Planning in early 2013.
In 2014, he was awarded the prestigious and exclusive title of Chartered Financial Planner. The title is the highest accolade within financial planning and widely accepted as the gold standard qualification for professional financial advisers in the UK.
Stephen’s goal is to help people create the financial structure that supports the life they want to live. In some cases, that means helping people to articulate what they actually want from life.
Stephen loves helping people to attain financial peace of mind and giving them freedom to enjoy life to the full.
Stephen is married to Rachel and they have two young children: Evelyn, age five, and Tommy, age one. They live together in Ipswich.
Stephen enjoys spending time with his family and whenever possible likes to find time to make music (he plays the drums and guitar), read, play golf, keep fit, eat good food and play darts with friends.
All regulated financial advisers must be authorised by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) and therefore appear on their register. You can find Stephen’s entry here.
Furthermore, all advisers must have an up-to-date Statement of Professional Standing (SPS). This shows they are suitably qualified and have carried out the required amount of Continuous Professional Development (CPD). You can click here to view Stephen’s.
