Paul Hutton

Managing Director

I enjoy nothing more than nice food and nice wine in good company. I like most sports, especially rugby, though my interest is mainly of the armchair variety. When I get the chance I like exploring and experiencing new things, having recently climbed up Kilimanjaro for charity. As a father of two, much of my spare time is spent with my family either doing the mundane like homework or the more exciting like Tank Fest!

I am old enough to have served as a National Service Army officer. With extended service I Commanded the "White Helmets" Royal Signals Motor Cycle display team. Now after more than 40 years serving clients holistically I will retire when over age 80 actively to enjoy my courtyard, garden and cellar and listen to Opera. My many friends include numerous clients and their families.

Rob Young

Adviser

A father of three, I spend much of the time running around after my children. When I do get some spare time I spend it studying, reading, writing (and self-publishing the occasional results), cooking and binge-watching TV shows. I also try to get outdoors as much as possible, living as I do between the New Forest and the golden sandy beaches of Bournemouth.

Away from the office I enjoy listening to music, especially rock, and attending live concerts. I am also a big sports fan enjoying football, golf, cricket and tennis in particular, although mainly in a watching rather than participating capacity. I am married and enjoy spending time with my wife, young son and daughter and our bulldog Max.

James Anderson

Adviser

I spent my formative years in the Royal Air Force serving in places like Iraq, Afghanistan and the Falkland Islands to name a few. My interests include History, Sociology, Psychology and Economics and I’m a massive movie buff. I like to keep active outside of work and I am a regular in the gym; I’ve recently taken up indoor climbing and I’m a keen runner. Charity is also important to me and I regularly raise money through my hobbies. I love food and drink and you’ll regularly find me cooking a BBQ or a Sunday Roast. I also make a great cocktail. If I’m not at home, I’m always trying to find a good restaurant in the city.

Jessica Lyons

Paraplanner

I have worked in a number of different sectors before choosing financial services. I have been highly involved with various charities over the years both in my work and personal life and have completed several marathons to support them. I am a keen reader of pretty much anything, and enjoy both the theatre and the cinema – I am a secret fan of bad films. In my spare time I like to be outside – gardening, walking, visiting new places - unless of course there is an opportunity to go shopping.

Outside of work I enjoy going out with my family and friends. I especially love to cook and discover new places to eat. I am an avid reader but do tend to read more than my fair share of trashy novels.

I enjoy listening to music (new & old), and going to concerts. Cinema is also a great passion of mine. I am a fully qualified F.A coach and at the weekend I am a volunteer and manager of a children’s football team. This is very rewarding and I really get great pleasure from this.

Outside of work, I enjoy finding nice restaurants, relaxing spa days, cooking, reading, and most of all, shopping! I love visiting new places and meeting new people, and I am partial to a good night out… However, an evening cuddled on the sofa with my dog Lilly is sometimes all I need!
