Phil Anderson Financial Services appoints Luke McColl as financial adviser
Aberdeenshire-based financial advisory firm Phil Anderson Financial Services has appointed Luke McColl as a financial adviser in their expanding Caithness branch.
The firm supported the former Wick High School pupil to complete his professional exams, before offering him a role within their Wick team.
Mr McColl, an accounting graduate from Edinburgh Napier University, has been awarded the Diploma for Financial Advisers (DipFA) qualification from the London Institute for Banking and Finance. Phil Anderson Financial Services supported him with his course fees and with advice and guidance throughout his studies. Luke’s new role will see him advising clients on their finances, focusing on their pensions and investments.
Having previously worked as an accountant with a software company in Edinburgh, Mr McColl returned to his hometown of Wick last year and worked on a self-employed basis, while studying towards the DipFA.
Company founder and MD, Phil Anderson, said: “I’m delighted to welcome Luke to the team, and I am confident he will be a great asset to the Wick team and to the firm as a whole. We’ve seen huge demand for our services recently, prompting 6 new appointments this year alone. With lots of further developments on the horizon, including securing new office premises in Caithness, it is a very exciting time for the team and the financial industry.”
Luke McColl added: “I’m very grateful to Phil for his unstinting guidance, support and encouragement throughout the course of my studies. I’m excited to embark on my career as a Financial Adviser with Phil Anderson Financial Services in my hometown of Wick, and I look forward to helping clients make the best use of their finances.”
