Peter Chadborn is an IFA, founder and principal of Plan Money. The firm which was founded in 2002, prides itself on its modern approach to financial planning and its ability to adapt to clients' changing financial planning requirements.

He believes that people on many levels of income and different stages of life can benefit from receiving independent financial advice. Peter is a frequent commentator in the national and trade media and the firm has won several awards.
