Meet Lewys Richards

Lewys has worked in financial services since 2013, jumping straight in after university. After learning his craft at a local firm, Lewys became qualified to advise clients in 2015. Following three years of providing top-quality advice and service to clients, he became a Chartered Financial Planner in 2018.

Lewys specialises in pensions and investments, focusing on putting plans in place for clients who are planning their retirement. He embraces technology, using cashflow modelling to assist his clients to live the life they want in retirement, and to enjoy their wealth while they’re able to.


All advisers must have an up-to-date Statement of Professional Standing (SPS). This shows they are suitably qualified and have carried out the required amount of Continuous Professional Development (CPD). Click here to view Lewys’.
