Monica joined True Bearing to further her career in the world of independent financial advice. She had previously worked for a firm only offering restricted advice. Having spent the majority of her career with larger businesses, she was attracted to True Bearing as they were an ideal fit with her ambition to work for a strong local, community minded firm.
Monica is passionate about providing an excellent service and consistently puts the client at the heart of everything she does. Building trust with her clients is vitally important to her and she works extremely hard to establish a good rapport with all her clients. Keeping her clients up to date with relevant changes in taxation, regulation and economic developments is at the forefront of everything she does. This gives them peace of mind that their financial affairs are being dealt with in their best interest. Monica believes this is why so many of her clients recommend her to friends and family.
Providing advice on pensions, investments, protection and inheritance tax planning, Monica has a wealth of experience in putting together financial advice strategies for clients. She believes that financial advice is often filled with complicated technical jargon and can be very daunting for the client. She ensures that she breaks through the technical information and provides simple, understandable advice to help the client make the right choice in achieving their financial goals.
For six years Monica worked on the NHS pension scheme with hospital consultants, helping them through the pension reform minefield. She is very passionate about this area of work. She still sees it as a big issue going forward. She enjoys working through and creating solutions for her clients in this capacity.
