Get to know Lydia Taft

Lydia is a fully qualified Financial Adviser and is on the pathway to achieving Chartered status from the CII Professional Body.

Since starting her career within the financial services industry, Lydia has experienced working within all job roles involved in the financial planning process; including analysis and research, developing client suitability reports and practicing as an independent financial adviser. This has given her a solid understanding of all aspects of the process end to end.

Lydia believes that financial advice should be for everybody, but is aware that many people are unable to reap the benefits of financial advice because they don't know where to start, or don't feel that they have enough money to invest. Lydia's vision is to help break down these preconceptions by guiding clients through the complexities of financial planning, and providing the highest quality of financial advice in a way that is simple to understand, suitable for everyone and stress free.

Lydia describes her approach as being thorough and personal. Her key driver is being able to make a positive impact, by assisting clients in achieving their financial goals to ensure they can live their best life; regardless of their investment experience or the size of their investment.

Outside of work Lydia has a passion for travel, food and good music.
