John re-joined CDC after 26 years at Standard Life, a short initial stint at CDC and a two year spell at a national IFA firm.
John has vast experience on protection, investment and pension matters and honed his specialism in pensions through a number of years spent in Standard Life’s Pensions Technical Team, with responsibility for dealing with the interpretation of legislative changes and conveying these to the IFA community through CPD workshops. John was also tasked with preparing and delivering exam training days nationally for the financial services community on pension funding, retirement options and pension transfers.
John holds the CII’s Chartered Financial Planner status, which compliments the values of CDC in encouraging the highest professional and ethical standards.
Outside of work he follows Scottish football, so has little interest in the wider aspect of the game, and enjoys the frustrations of a lovely walk around the golf course.
