Tom is TAM Europe's Business Development Manager. He brings with him years of insight and knowledge gained from first-hand experience from various roles in the financial industry. Finance was a subject Tom grew up surrounded with. His paternal grandfather was Agency Director for Schroder Wagg’s direct sales division and his two parents have been IFA’s for most of their working life. As a consequence, Tom was given the opportunity to study and sit the CeFA exams at the age of 17, during the summer between his AS and A-levels. At the time he was the youngest ever to sit them in the UK. As Tom progressed in the world of finance as an IFA, he grew more interested in the fund management side and was subsequently head hunted into a hedge fund. Tom, believing he was ready to take on the next challenge, embarked on a role with TAM Europe to grow and develop the company’s operations in Spain.
