After some early corporate roles Michael recognised the need to free his entrepreneurial spirit, so at age 25 he started his business. This enabled him to combine his passion for proper financial planning and innovation with a desire to help bring about real and lasting change in the way financial advice is delivered in the UK.

In addition to being a Chartered Wealth Manager, Michael is a Chartered Financial Planner and holds the globally recognised Certified Financial Planner qualification. He is also a Fellow of both the Personal Finance Society and the Chartered Institute for Securities & Investment and as such, is one of the most highly qualified financial planning professionals in the UK.

Amongst Chamberlyns’ clients, Michael is known for his attention to detail and insightful perspective, yet also his informal approach and straightforward communication style.

Away from work, besides travel, Michael enjoys reading and is a fan of most sports. In his younger days he was lucky enough to have represented Northamptonshire County Cricket Club between the ages of 9 and 17.

Michael is married to Claire, having been together as a couple since they were aged 17. They have two beautiful young daughters; Amelia, who was born in August 2012 and Ellie, who was born in February 2014.
