Douglas has lots of life experience, including time in the Merchant Navy, Hotel/Restaurant management, insurance brokering and being an executive manager for two insurance companies for 13 years. He has been involved in the Financial Services industry for 42 years, becoming a tied agent (CML) in 1973. Douglas is also a substantial property investor and specialises in strategic planning and wealth creation – including property and lump sum, mortgages and insurance. He specialises in creating wealth strategy for clients to achieve financial independence by taking a holistic approach to planning; giving choices as to lifestyle from the mid 50’s. That’s why the SHARE philosophy really appealed to him – high standards and continuity of service for clients.
Douglas is a keen but struggling golfer, walker, and enjoys travel. He also enjoys off-roading in his old, pet Range Rover as well as being partial to the odd Pilsner on a hot day. Douglas has been married to Sharlie for 40 years, who has provided great support to their business.
