Chartered Financial PlannerHoward is a Chartered Financial Planner (CFP), the highest industry qualification. He is also a Fellow of the Personal Finance Society (FPFS), who has worked in Financial Services for over 25 years. He is an Independent Financial Advisor (IFA) offering financial advice and helping clients understand how their investments and finances can support, and ideally enhance, their lifestyle.

When Howard offers financial planning, he advocates cash flow modelling which provides a visual “roadmap” of a person’s financial future and helps inform his financial advice and his client’s financial decisions. As a pension adviser Howard has extensive experience of providing pension advice for anyone approaching retirement and for retirees, including recommendations on the most effective way to generate income from investments throughout retirement. He also offers investment advice on ISAs, Trusts and provides tax efficient financial planning.

Howard offers a very personal financial planning service to his clients by having an accessible local office, being in regular contact and by educating and informing them on their investments and progress towards their financial objectives. He offers financial advice throughout Dorset and Hampshire including Ringwood, Fordingbridge, Burley, Verwood, Ferndown, Wimborne and Christchurch.

SIFAHoward often works alongside local solicitors and accountants to ensure clients receive joined up legal, tax and financial advice. Howard is listed on the SIFA Directory of Professional Financial Advisers, which is endorsed by the Law Society.

Howard originally worked as a Stockbroker in London in the late 1980’s and more recently managed and ran the Ringwood offices of Edward Jones, one of the largest private client stockbroking and financial advice firms in the world. To compliment this, he was Senior Client Partner at a large national IFA, using cash flow modelling and risk-controlled portfolio management to ensure his clients achieved their financial goals without taking unnecessary risk. He is experienced in helping clients who receive life-changing sums of money as he was an approved adviser to lottery winners.

In 2018 Lonsdale Services won the Retirement Planner Award (RPA) for Best Individual Pension Advice firm in the South East and Anglia, and we were ‘highly commended’ in the Estate Planner Adviser category. In 2017 we won the RPA Outstanding Customer Care award.

Howard has been married to Cathy for over 25 years and has 3 adult children (Jack, Katie and Harry). He enjoys watching most sports, plays golf and enjoys running and skiing, to offset his enjoyment of food and wine!
