Richard Meats, VouchedFor 2019 Top Rated Financial Adviser.

I have been qualified and advising clients since 2004 , and spent much of this period with Nationwide Building Society until the launch of Tudor Franklin in 2017.

Doing the right thing in the right way is paramount to the way that I advise, which resulted in being presented with numerous internal company awards including “Trusted Adviser 2015” at the Nationwide National Conference. More recently, I am extremely proud to be featured in the Times supplement of VouchedFor 2019 Guide to the UK’s Top Rated Financial Advisers.

I genuinely enjoy meeting new people, giving advice, researching financial products and building long term relationships with my clients, so feel lucky that my job has become one of my favourite hobbies. My work has allowed me to share my knowledge to mentor business students at Hinckley Academy and John Cleveland Sixth Form College and also appear on BBC Radio Leicester in the capacity of a pension expert.

Outside of work, I live in Burbage and spend lots of time with my wife Julie and three children. Together we enjoy going for meals, days out and travelling; while I have a personal interest in most sports, namely football, cricket and swimming.

I have worked for financial institutions for over 15 years in an advisory capacity and pride myself on being able ‘to make a difference’ to my clients. There is nothing more satisfying than sharing their journey with them, but also being there for them when they need my advice the most. My professional qualifications and extensive experience within financial services has allowed me to take that knowledge and create a business, built on my core values of delivering honest, clear, understandable and trusted advice.

Over the years I have been fortunate enough to receive various accolades and this culminated in being awarded ‘employee of the year’ for Nationwide Building Society, my last employer. To be given the company’s highest recognition possible, was a huge honour for me and my family. More recently, I am extremely proud to have be featured in The Times supplement of VouchedFor 2019 Guide to the UK’s Top Rated Financial Advisers. Being local to Leicester, it is great to be able to give back to the local community and this is something close to my heart. I have been regularly involved with Leicester College and in particular students from the Peter Jones Academy, where I have been fortunate enough to share my knowledge, and mentor students that are looking to build successful careers and businesses.

The birth of my daughters, Freya and Belle, have been the proudest moments in my life and I cherish the time I have with my family… But in between that I do try and do the other things I enjoy, which is mainly travelling and keeping fit!
