Peter Flowers -
Peter focuses on providing excellent customer service to enhance the value and benefit clients get from engaging with a financial adviser. 'Very often, my clients' primary concern is to preserve their hard-earned capital, something that is under increased scrutiny in today's economic climate. It is my responsibility to listen to my clients' requirements and then formulate a robust strategy, utilising my expertise, experience and cashflow forecasting to ensure they can make informed decisions to enable them to achieve their desired goals.
Good financial planning is about building trust with a client, ensuring they are always well informed about their finances, the options they have and the correct solutions available to them. Above all, I believe in treating people the way I like to be treated, with honesty, empathy and respect.'
With over 24 years of working in the financial sector, Peter has a wealth of experience from his formative years spent with the Prudential, to his current status as managing director of Enhance Wealth Management. A member of the Chartered Insurance Institute, currently at Diploma level, he continually strives to increase his knowledge, as well as building relationships with other key professions such as high-level tax planners, accountants, solicitors and discretionary fund managers, to enable him to offer his clients high-quality, impartial advice.
Outside of work, Peter enjoys spending time with his wife and two daughters, as well as socialising with his friends. He is a member of Berkhamsted Golf Club, a keen skier and loves sailing, having taken part in the 2011 Fastnet offshore race campaign.
