We are delighted to announce that Chartered Financial Planner, George Howard, has joined the Middle East team.
George has more than 30 years experience in Financial Planning and Private Banking gained during a successful career in London. Prior to joining The Fry Group, she worked with UBS and Barclays Wealth, as well as spending 24 years with Lloyds Banking Group.
George brings not only her extensive experience of financial planning to the region, but also a unique dynamic; she will be one of only a few female Chartered Financial Planners in the Middle East.
She also joins us at an exciting time as we were recently awarded Best Adviser Firm – Middle East at the International Adviser Awards. This international recognition, coming within a year of the office opening, demonstrates our commitment to the region and boosts our focus on continuing to expand to meet the needs of our growing client base.
George has shared with us her thoughts about joining the company:
I am both delighted and excited to join The Fry Group. The main attraction is The Fry Group’s clear focus on becoming the leading global provider of UK tax, estate and financial planning advice whilst maintaining a highly personalised client-focused service. Being part of the growing Dubai office is an amazing opportunity to provide trusted advice to clients with integrity, which is how I have always worked in London.
I feel there is a significant gap here in the UAE to provide straightforward, transparent advice, especially to female clients. This will be my main focus, while also drawing on my experience dealing with entrepreneurs and senior employees at large institutions.
If you are looking to speak to a financial planning professional in the Middle East, do not hesitate to get in touch with our award-winning team, located in the Dubai International Financial Centre.
