Edward Bishop

Edward first started in the financial services industry in February 1999 having studied Physics at the University of Birmingham and was attracted to the industry by the prospect of working in a constantly evolving environment.

To date Edward has passed numerous advanced qualifications in pensions, taxation, trusts and investments, and as a result is a Chartered Financial Planner.

Outside of work Edward is married with one Daughter who has just started school. Any spare time is spent either mountain biking or running, Edward ran the London Marathon in April 2015. Edward is also a keen traveller, having "backpacked" around the world for 18 months from age 30, climbed Island Peak in Nepal, and scuba dived in many places around the world. Visiting some of the wonders of the world also ties in well with Edward’s enjoyment of photography.
