Mark Burch of Pembrokeshire based SLEEKSTONE Private Clients www.sleekstoneprivateclients.co.uk has been working diligently on behalf of his clients during the lockdown period to both advise and provide peace of mind during this uncertain time.  But he has also been able to focus on the future of his own business, to ensure the future of his wealth management company. Mark is delighted that SLEEKSTONE has been able to expand during the past few weeks, purchasing another business and growing the portfolio by £1.5 million, which takes the total funds under management to in excess of £5m in just under 10 months.

With over 20 years of experience and having come back to the profession he loves following a traumatic brain injury in 2012 that saw his previous wealth management business having to be sold, Mark is delighted to “be back” at the forefront of wealth management in Wales. Mark comments, “I help entrepreneurs & directors across Wales take control of their financial future using simple financial planning. It’s therefore vital that as a financial planner, I am planning ahead for my clients and am able to offer them the highest quality support, specially during tough times including this current global pandemic.  By actively growing the SLEEKSTONE portfolio, I know I continue to be in the best place possible to provide excellence of service for the months and years ahead.”

This is particularly essential at the moment when people are spending more of their free time online, browsing through social media, using search engines and forward planning for when social distancing is less pertinent.
