Dawn is one of our Financial Planners and our Director at Dawn Slater Wealth Management. She has been an IFA for over 30 years, and has run her own practice since 1993. Dawn has a passion for helping clients achieve their goals through sensible financial planning. The essence of financial planning is having goals and objectives and then following the plan as closely as possible to reach them. Some clients have been with Dawn for over 20 years, and it is very satisfying for her to see that the original goals and objectives have been met, or even exceeded over this length of time. Dawn is married and her two sons are professional musicians. In her leisure time, Dawn likes to dance, and she visits the gym regularly. Contact Dawn directly today on 01635 551926 or 07760 681407.
