Lyndhurst’s female advisers, Johanna Haigh and Victoria Seabrooke and Paraplanner, Charlotte Collier, who all form part of the Focus for Women department, recently attended the AJ Bell Luminary seminars on investment, pensions, technical and platform sessions, plus motivational talks.
This year the speakers included FinalytiQ’s Founder Abraham Okusanya and Iona Bain, Founder of the Young Money Blog, with a return visit from the inspirational Corinne Hutton from the charity Finding your Feet. Alison Mollard, Business Development Manager at AJ Bell, Claudia Calich, Fund Manager Emerging Markets from M&G Investments and Lisa Webster, Technical Resource Consultant from AJ Bell completed the impressive line up.
Lyndhurst Financial Management, one of Hertfordshire’s leading financial planning and financial advice firms, set up its Focus for Women department two years ago to both encourage and help women to make better financial decisions. Charlotte Collier says:
“It was a very inspirational event and offered a much-needed platform for women in financial services. The agenda was packed with good speakers and by closing the day with networking we had the chance to meet lots of new people and further our knowledge of the sector”.
