Daniel made the jump from being a professional footballer to financial adviser in 2016 and hasn’t looked back since.
Daniel had an excellent football career, playing for Manchester United, Swansea, Barnsley, QPR, Blackpool, Exeter, Rotherham and Bury, scoring over 100 career league goals. He also played internationally, earning 3 caps for Wales.
In 2016, Daniel obtained his Diploma in Financial Planning and joined KWM. His new career initially allowed Daniel to utilise his personal experiences to provide wealth management advice to professional footballers. Daniel finds immense satisfaction in guiding young players towards their financial potential and helping them make sound financial decisions.
Daniel has continued to build his expertise in all areas of financial planning, he now excels in advising lawyers, business owners, professionals, and elite athletes. Daniel enjoys building long term relationships with his clients, by providing highly personalised advice, always keeping an eye on the future.
Football still plays an important role in Daniel’s life, and in July 2018 he entered the history books whilst playing part-time for Bangor City in a game against Lyngby FC of Denmark. Where he became the first ever FCA regulated financial adviser to play in the UEFA Europa League.
Outside of work and football Daniel is a huge fan of the NFL and a keen cyclist. When he’s not in the saddle or playing football, he devotes his time to his wife and two daughters.
Dan has been great to work with, not only is he very professional and personable he's throughly good at his job. Dan explains everything I need to know, reports back to me with progress and is very honest which is something I have not experienced with previous financial advisors. I'd 100% recommend him.
Business owner at The Movement and Wellbeing Clinic
One of the key reasons why I have chosen Daniel and SJPP is the way in which the complexities of Pension Planning has been explained to me in an easy-to-understand manner and in turn has allowed me to grow my Pension plan at an accelerated rate whilst obtaining a substantial saving on my Corporation Tax bill. Thus allowing me to put the maximum amount into the Pension plan whilst making a significant saving on my Corporation Tax bill.
