Meet The Team


With the new office space up and running, we are excited to introduce to you seven new faces who have joined the FinancePath team.  It's an exciting time for us as we invest in our team, as it means we have more people to help you our clients reach your goals.  Rather than give you the usual career bio of our new starters we thought we'd ask them some more personal and interesting questions to help you get to know them.
