Simon has always worked in financial services. After completing a degree in Economics he worked for around 5 years with the Inland Revenue pensions team. He then passed many professional exams in pensions and financial services, whilst working for a number of accountancy firms. Over those 8 years he became a successful independent financial adviser.

In 2006 Simon set up in business as The Lost Coin, based in the East Midlands. Some 3 years later he moved his family to the South West, to be near his in-laws, whilst keeping almost all his clients. In late 2014 he incorporated the business as The Lost Coin Financial Planning Ltd.

Simon is married to Heidi, who provides administration and marketing support, when not looking after their 3 teenage children and a rescued springer spaniel. They are both actively involved in their local village church where Simon is a trustee, the Treasurer and plays the clarinet and Heidi is also a trustee with oversight of the children's and youth work.
