FRANCESCA SMITH

PARAPLANNER

Francesca graduated from Exeter University in 2017 with a Degree in Geography. Her desire to pursue a career in Financial Planning originated from the lack of Financial Education available for young people, herself included, in how to handle their finances. This is something that she hopes to help address as she moves through the qualifications required to achieve her Diploma in Regulated Financial Planning. Francesca is already proving to be a valuable member of the team.

In her spare time, Francesca enjoys spending time with her family and friends, travelling, horse riding and running. She is partial to the odd glass of champagne and a lover of wine and cheese.
