Paul Hyland APFS MCSI , Chartered Financial Planner

Paul Hyland is a highly qualified and experienced Chartered professional and has worked within the financial services industry since 2001.

After graduating from Cardiff University he embarked on a career in Finance working with a number of tier 1 Investment Banking organisations across a range of global markets in Operational, Management and Project Management roles. This enabled him to develop his technical knowledge and analytical skills.

Paul has numerous qualifications from highly regarded professional bodies representing the industry, including the Chartered Insurance Institute, Chartered Institute for Securities and Investment, and the Chartered Financial Analyst Society of the UK. Paul qualified as a Chartered Wealth Manager in 2013 and achieved the Chartered Financial Planner designation in 2017.

Paul has experience in dealing with a broad spectrum of clients often devising sophisticated financial planning solutions to help them achieve their lifetime personal and financial objectives.

Paul has a very personal approach and always takes time to really understand his clients and earn their trust, a process he feels should never be rushed. He strongly believes that the quality of the advice he can deliver is commensurate with the level of understanding he has of his client’s situation, objectives, concerns and aspirations. He is a natural teacher and uniquely able to explain often complex strategies in simple terms, cutting out the jargon.

Rather than specialising in a single area of advice Paul provides a holistic financial planning service which considers all aspects of the client’s situation and helps them to efficiently and effectively achieve their goals.
