“Jane has proven to be insightful, professional, and highly effective – a trusted advisor who clearly has our best interests in mind. She's also a delight to work with!”

Jane Slater

Managing Director and Chartered Financial Planner

Credentials: APFS – QCF level 6

The day job: I really enjoy spending time with clients, getting to know them, finding the right solutions for them, and ultimately seeing them enjoying the lifestyle and goals that were often just dreamed of at the start of the process.

Best thing about it: Helping clients find the best path for them, and then being part of their journey over what can be many years brings an enormous sense of satisfaction and purpose.

Favourite pastime: Being outdoors, active, and preferably by the sea. My happy place is in the far west of Cornwall walking along the coastal paths or in the surf.

Fun fact: The most stupid thing I’ve done is to stand on top of a bi-plane – whilst it was flying!

Stuart Ferris

Associate Director and Chartered Financial Planner

Credentials: BSc APFS

The day job: I help clients plan their future financially by reviewing and arranging their finances more efficiently. Once a plan of action is reached, I then help with implementing and monitoring policies to achieve these goals. I’m also part of Headley’s management team.

Best thing about it: It’s really enjoyable to see the light “switch on” on clients’ faces, when I’ve demonstrated they can afford to retire early or help their children buy a home.

Favourite pastime: I love spending time with my family, along with playing sport and (trying) to keep fit. During the lockdown, I finally improved my DIY and vegetable growing skills.

Fun fact: I’ve jumped out of a perfectly good, working aeroplane at 15,000 feet and can eat three cream crackers in a minute without water (not as easy as it sounds – try it).

Director and Chartered Financial Planner

Credentials: Chartered, Industry Fellow, BA (Hons – First Class), Society of Trust and Estate Planners Certificate in Financial Planning (Distinction).

The day job: Challenging individuals and families to really think about what they want from life and helping them use their financial resources in the most efficient way to achieve those goals.

Jonathan Woods

Mortgage and Protection Specialist

Jonathan Woods

Mortgage and Protection Specialist

Credentials: Certificate in Advanced Mortgage Advice, Certificate in Equity Release, Diploma in Financial Planning.

The day job: Initially joined 20 years ago as an IFA, however I quickly found that my interest was in mortgages. I enjoy the close working relationship that forms between the advisor and client when arranging mortgages and planning house purchases. The area is complex and so to give good advice I found that I had to specialise and have never looked back since. Protection is an area that feeds well into mortgages because the loss of a loved one can have disastrous financial consequences and it is vital to make sure that families are protected.

Best thing about it: My clients. I have always loved getting involved in their lives and helping them make key decisions.

Favourite pastime: Love running, hiking and table tennis.

Fun fact: I have built an igloo and eaten a worm.
