Lorraine Ames FPFS

Associate Director, Head of Technical

Head of Technical, Lorraine has been in the financial services industry for over 30 years, previously working as a financial planner for a large insurer, a private bank and latterly a small IFA Firm. She holds the coveted gold standard Chartered Financial Planner designation and is a Fellow of The PFS but is no longer a practicing financial planner.

Her experience in wealth management and corporate benefits helps her provide training and support to our financial planners and administrators. Complex pensions, defined benefits pension transfers and more complicated investments such as Enterprise Investment Schemes and Venture Capital Trusts are Lorraine’s speciality along with cash flow modelling which gives clients a detailed picture of their assets, investments, income and expenditure.

Outside of work Lorraine’s passion is her Boxer dogs, most weekends she can be found travelling the length and breadth of the country to dog shows with the occasional judging appointment. She sits on the committee of the Essex & Eastern Boxer Club and is Chairman of the Broadland Dog Training Club, which offers obedience training classes to puppies and adult dogs of all shapes, sizes and abilities. Sadly her own dogs remain quite unruly but it plays to her keen interest in all things behavioural whether relating to people or canines. She is a keen Norwich City FC fan although more of an armchair follower these days.
