Charlie was previously a Financial Adviser with 3 of the largest firms of advisers in the UK, but he realised that these companies were too product focused and weren’t really identifying their client’s true needs and concerns. When he set up Efficient Portfolio, he wanted to change the focus to a more client centric, truly independent approach, which could deliver much more value to his client’s financial future. He does this using an innovative approach that he is passionate about sharing.
