Welcome to the team Deborah Riding!
We're delighted to announce that a financial adviser with an outstanding reputation and 26 years experience in the financial services and mortgage advice sector has joined our practice.
Deborah Riding joins us in the newly created role of Compliance and Development Manager. Deborah will offer financial advice directly to our growing portfolio of clients, and she will also coach our advisers and business support team to further develop their own skills and experience.
Deborah comes to Stan Sherlock Associates after a wide-ranging 21-year career as a financial adviser with HSBC. There her roles included mortgage and protection advice to holistic wealth management, retirement and Inheritance Tax advice. Her last role was as Area Premier Relationship Manager where she led and coached a financial advice team. Deborah's earlier career began as a graduate trainee with the Cumberland Building Society before she quickly developed into branch management and investment and mortgage adviser roles.
Deborah particularly enjoys dealing with complex financial advice matters and helping people live their lives without worrying about financial problems. She said: "Everyone worries about money – whether they have a lot or a little. I aim to make complicated financial matters as simple as possible for my clients. I take the time to understand their personal needs and recommend the right options for them so their decision-making process is as stress-free as possible."
"Stan Sherlock Associates puts their customers first and, as a local family-run firm, they can find the right solution which ensures the best outcome for each client. I look forward to sharing my experience and expertise, but I know I will also learn a lot from their brilliant, well established and supportive team."
Our Practice Principal Bobby Sherlock said: "We are delighted to welcome Deborah to the Stan Sherlock Associates team. She'll be a huge asset to our clients and our staff are looking forward to learning from Deborah's vast experience in the financial services industry. Everyone at Stan Sherlock Associates wants to find the right financial solutions for our clients and we're all looking forward to continuing to develop our skills and knowledge together."
Deborah lives with her family in Cumwhinton, on the outskirts of Carlisle, and in her spare time enjoys being outdoors riding her horse or walking her two Labradors. Welcome to the team Deborah!
