Kenton - Partner/Adviser
Kenton started his Financial Services journey in Wills and Estate Planning after many personal painful experiences with other law companies not performing as they should. Incorrect advice at the time to members of his family meant a massive financial loss and impact to future generations. He found similar problems in the area of financial advice so became qualified to give that advice himself.
He felt passionately that there should be a better way to guide people through the process of financial advice; to help, inform and educate people far and wide of their options when it comes to planning and taking action with their finances.
Using the negative from his personal experiences, Kenton uses this to enforce his positive and trusted approach to Financial Advice and Estate Planning. Kenton and his team use their lifetime experience to foresee challenges and work with you to create solutions.
He is based in Bideford, North Devon and covers the South West of England. His passions are Rugby, Formula 1 and caravanning and has previously coached and managed youngsters up to the age of 19 in Rugby.
Richard - Partner/Adviser
Prior to co-founding Aspire with Kenton, Richard worked in the corporate blue-chip environment for over 25 years.
Richard lives with his wife Lindis in Congleton in Cheshire and covers Cheshire, Staffordshire and South Manchester. When not helping people with mortgages Richard can be found running, cycling or musically directing shows in the local theatre.
Richard’s strength lies in the ability to educate and inform, making complex things simple, helping people to understand how to plan their property investments wisely, and how to protect them.
He is easy going yet thorough, and very responsive to queries all the way through the case from start to finish, keeping you informed and up to date. If asked, he will also swap curry recipes with you – a very worthwhile exercise where he is concerned.
