My name is Dan and I am married to the lovely Hannah. I’m 31 and live in Hatfield, Hertfordshire. We’ve been married now for 6 years and time has certainly flown!
I work in London for a financial planning firm called EQ Investors as one of their Senior Technical Consultants which means that I am a paraplanner. Paraplanning is a profession which is involved in the preparation of financial planning advice. We undertake technical analysis and put this into an understandable written form with recommendations about how our clients can achieve their goals. In our firm this also means being a technical support resource for the financial planners being able to explain and answer a huge range of unusual questions. In October 2014 I was named IFP Paraplanner of the Year 2014 which was a huge achievement.
Outside of work
When I’m not at work I’m involved in some of the practicalities of running a small local church (Evangelical Baptist Church). I teach a small teens Sunday School group each week and help out with our youth group. In addition I share responsibilities for leading services with the Pastor.
My wife and I like to enjoy the countryside when we have opportunity. For the last few years we have been exploring the Canals of the UK by narrowboat with friends.
