Graham Reeve BSc APFS
Chartered Financial Planner
Graham graduated from The University of Leeds in 1970 with an honours degree in Electrical and Electronic Engineering. He worked as an Electronic Systems Design Engineer until 1982 when he joined the Sales and Marketing Dept of a major semiconductor manufacturer reporting directly to a European Board member.
Graham initially moved into Financial Services in 1990 becoming an Independent Financial Adviser in 2000. Since becoming an IFA Graham has continued with advanced financial planning studies and achieved Chartered Financial Planner status in April 2006. This positions Graham as one of the best qualified Financial Advisers in the UK.
However, Graham believes that academic qualifications are not an end in themselves, and his early training as a system design engineer now enables him to apply his technical knowledge of finance to clients’ real life circumstances to design bespoke solutions that meet their individual needs.
