A financial services company has appointed a new adviser.

David Winnard has joined the team at Thomson Hayton Winkley Financial Services Limited, in Kendal.

He will work alongside Duncan Fox, director and chartered financial planner, Cheryl Barnes, paraplanner, and Julia Morgan, administrator, in developing the business and advising clients.

He said: “I pride myself on offering trusted, professional service and making complex financial matters simple and easy to understand.

"Often people are unsure about what a financial advisor can do, it’s our job to simply protect your financial interests and make your assets work harder.

"I’m really looking forward to meeting clients and being part of the team.”

Director Simon Theobald said: “It’s great to welcome David on board. Expanding the team in this part of the Thomson Hayton Winkley group will mean we can offer our clients an enhanced service.”
