Based in Portland, Henry has been involved in the financial services industry for 35 years. After college, he started at the National Westminster Bank in Carmarthen and by 1985, he was a Corporate Lending manager based in the City of London.
He became a financial adviser and now advises on all aspects of financial services including Mortgages, Business & Personal Protection.
Outside of work, Henry’s interests have centred on Rugby and Golf. He previously played for Llandovery, London Welsh and NatWest Bank RFC but after retiring as a player, became a keen spectator and took up the more sedate game of golf! He says his handicap is his clubs - but admits to playing off 26 for various golf societies, to which he is a member.
Henry’s role for the firm is that of a Mortgage & Pure Protection Adviser, whilst also conducting research and report writing for the practice.
