Francis IlesPartner, Financial Adviser, DipFA, Cert PFS, Cmap, MIFS
I started financial services in 1989 with Albany Life who were taken over by Canada Life. When Canada Life decided to re-structure and close the Truro branch, I moved to Abbey Life. Having started the road into management throughout this time, and when the position became vacant at Abbey Life, I applied for and became Branch Manager. Abbey’s sales force were then taken over by Allied Dunbar, where I stayed for a year in a management role. After becoming fed up with not being in control of my own destiny I decided to become an Independent Financial Adviser and concentrate on providing a whole of market service to my growing client bank. In 2001 I made the decision to join Anderson Lloyd.
In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my children, who make sure I stay in shape in order to keep up with their football, swimming, horse riding and other such restful activities. I’ll travel up to watch Chelsea play several times a year with my kids and friends. I also enjoy running and mountain biking to stay in shape.
