About Plan Works
Of great value to our clients is the strong relationship we build with them. Underpinning everything we do is an ethos of integrity; in our advice, in our reporting and in our communication.
Hello, I’m Nathan Fryer, Director of Plan Works
After spending ten years working within Asset Management, I came to the conclusion that very few advisors were looking for single strategy fund solutions to satisfy their clients’ needs.
Being a proud member of the advisor community, I wanted to retain that, but this time turning my hand to building and nurturing my own business. Having met with many thousands of advisers over the years, I started to realise the value and support I could offer.
I am passionate about integrity and quality in financial advice. I am a champion of efficiency and of engaging expert skills in order to deliver the best outcome. And I am an avid supporter of a partnership style in business.
Hello, I’m Sian Davies Cole, Chartered Paraplanner and Director of Plan Works.
Having spent a number of years working in independent financial advice firms I felt that the time had come for me to enter the world of outsourced paraplanning.
In my opinion, paraplanning works best as a collaboration between Financial Planner and Paraplanner and having a strong awareness of the skills and personalities involved in both roles is key.
I am a firm believer that a quality mix of experience and qualifications is necessary to provide the support Financial Planners want and need.
I’m passionate about the client always being central to the advice and I keep them in my focus to ensure the advice is in their best interests, easy for them to understand and aligned with their personal and financial goals.
