William Nicholls

Investment Advisor

0147 329 7708

More about William

William has recently joined the team in Ipswich having spent 10 years in the City where he worked at various financial brokerages. His interest in financial markets and ability to dissect what is (and isn’t) important brought along a column in the City A.M. newspaper in a previous role. This, tied with a natural ability to get on with people, meant a move into Wealth Management was the perfect fit. He is currently sitting the final exams of the Chartered Wealth Manager qualification, after which he would like to take the third and final CFA exam. William recently got married in Aldeburgh (where he is a fervent member of the golf club) and he has moved to Suffolk with his wife and Labrador puppy for a quieter life out of London.
