North West accountancy and business advisory firm MHA Moore and Smalley has strengthened its financial planning team with the appointment of experienced financial planning consultant Chris Colclough.
Chris joins MHA Moore and Smalley as consultant after holding a range of financial planning roles at firms including St. James’s Place, Pareto Financial Planning and Evelyn Partners. Before this, Chris was a business owner in the property development sector.
He will support MHA Moore and Smalley clients across the North West, advising business owners, professionals and high net worth individuals on investments, pensions-planning and risk management.
Graham Gordon, managing partner, MHA Moore and Smalley said: “The ability to fully understand our clients and support their long-term goals is key in financial planning. Chris’s expertise twinned with his experience as a business owner gives him this deep understanding and will mean he is able to provide the best possible advice.
“In addition, Chris’s approach to service and advising clients on their finances as if they are his own, aligns perfectly with ours and his appointment will further strengthen our offering to high-net-worth individuals across the North West.”
Chris lives in Sale, Greater Manchester and is currently studying toward being a chartered financial planner.
He said: “During my conversations with MHA Moore and Smalley, it was clear the firm deeply values both its clients and its staff.
“The opportunity to work in a business which allows staff opportunities to further develop and grow really excited me about the role. I’m looking forward to supporting our clients in meeting their financial goals.”
The appointment of Chris now brings the firm’s financial planning team to 30, with one partner, three directors and four consultants.
