Favourite Quote: “All things work together for good” – Romans 8

Location: Grantham, Lincolnshire

About Me: Before moving into the financial services industry Jacob ran his own business for 2 years, before selling it on and using the proceeds to start family life. He has been working in the financial services industry now for 5 years. He started working for a life insurance provider, helping professional advisers protect their clients and learnt quickly that he wanted to be the one giving the advice as he really felt his calling was to help clients directly. From there on he moved into advising on mortgages, working for a major high street estate agent where he gained a vast amount of experience. He then moved into an holistic financial planning role with Landmark IFA, working initially as an adviser aide before moving full time into financial planning. He left Landmark IFA in August 2020 and joined Alexander House Financial Planning.

He joined Alexander House Financial Planning with a view to help more clients and to join a firm that truly embraces a culture of ethics. Alexander House Financial Planning firmly believe that every client is unique, and their ethos is to put clients at the heart of everything that they do. Working with Alexander House Financial Planning and the Quilter Group (a FTSE Company) means that I can offer holistic financial planning, ensuring that my clients not only get the best advice and service, but also access to the best products.

Jacob lives in Grantham, Lincolnshire but can easily meet clients in their own homes or at a prearranged meeting point, whichever is easier for them. Being located in Grantham gives great access to the A1, as well as being on the London mainline. Therefore, depending on client needs, I can meet clients up to 2 hours/120 miles away or virtually over Zoom/Skype/FaceTime or any other video conferencing tools.

Jacob’s main focus is to help clients with their financial planning, their goals and objectives in life. Whether that is ensuring you can retire on time, save for school fees or anything else, his job is to make things simple, come up with a plan, put that plan into action and ensure it stays on track and ultimately deliver for his clients.

On a personal level, Jacob has been married to his wife Stephanie for just over 7 years and they have 2 lovely (albeit young and challenging!) children, James and Erin. They also have two dogs and have recently acquired a new puppy, Chief (I know… blame his 4-year-old!) and looking forward to seeing how he grows up. He has a keen interest in all things sport and would watch it all day if his wife allowed him! On the weekends they spend time as a family, and they go to Church every Sunday.

If you need help and advice, please get in touch. Any initial consultation is carried out at no cost or obligation on your part.







Jacob can offer help and advice in the following areas:

  • Mortgages
  • Equity Release
  • Personal Protection (Life insurance, Critical Illness Cover, Private Medical Insurance or Income Protection)
  • Business Protection (Shareholder Protection, Key Person Cover, Loan Protection and Relevant Life Cover)
  • Investments
  • Pensions (Including annuities, drawdown, pension switches and DB pensions)
  • Estate Planning (Inheritance Tax)
  • Wills & Power of Attorney (Referral Only)

SPECIALISMS:

He wouldn’t say he had a specific specialism as such; however, his preferred area of financial planning is in pensions and estate planning. He has a keen interest in helping clients preserve wealth for future generations knowing that they have spent their entire lives building up their precious nest eggs. To ensure that legacies are passed to the next generation and not swallowed up by tax and other things is really important to him.

  • Bachelor of Arts – Degree in Graphic Design
