Prior to joining the financial services industry, Matthew graduated from Keele University with an LLB (Hons) in Law with Politics in 2007, following which he completed the Siemens Graduate Programme in order to enhance his commercial understanding. As a consequence, Matthew has now established many working relationships with individuals and takes great consideration in constructing a tailored financial strategy to meet their needs which is, in part, to time he devotes gaining an insight and understanding into their specific financial requirements – whether these be personal or corporate.
Matthew is committed to ensuring that his industry knowledge remains relevant and current by placing a strong emphasis on personal development. He has achieved the highest professional qualification within financial planning, having successfully completed the Advanced Diploma in Financial Planning, and is accredited as both a Chartered Financial Planner and Chartered Wealth Manager. This, along with the pride and dedication that he places on developing solid personal relationships with his clients, ensures that he is able to offer a rounded, professional and principled service.
Charity is also important to Matthew and he regularly provides support to those who are less fortunate than ourselves. In particular, Smith Hobbs Wealth Management is passionate about supporting initiatives which provide care to the local community and for animals in need.
