Black & White Financial Services was incorporated in 2007, and we are a firm specialising in Retirement & Investment Planning. We are based in South Yorkshire and now have around 320 clients with more than £30 million under management. Our practice was originally formed as a partnership by Matt Sylvester and Nigel Simpson back in 2001, although we have worked alongside each other in Financial Services for over 20 years. Matt and Nigel are both now Directors of Black & White FS Ltd.
Matt has been in the Financial Industry since 1990 when he started his career with Britannic Assurance as a financial adviser in Rotherham. He quickly progressed to Executive Financial Planner with clients throughout South Yorkshire which brought him the accolade of Top Adviser of his division for 2 consecutive years. He also achieved top 10 adviser status in Company out of 2000 advisers for 3 consecutive years and was rewarded by overseas conventions in Barcelona, Cannes & Venice.
Nigel has been in the Financial Industry since 1989 when he also started his career with Britannic Assurance as a financial adviser in the Rotherham branch. He established himself as a highly motivated agent with management potential and when the Company discussed its restructure he was earmarked for Management. He became Sales Manager in 1999 when he took on a team of advisers running all compliance and sales.
Following Britannic’s demise in March 2001, both Nigel & Matt continued to work together in a Self Employed business partnership where Nigel became heavily involved in product research which gave him a better understanding of the IFA market.
In addition to the Directors at Black & White, our team consists of specialists in all areas of financial planning backed up by a dedicated administration team and external and independent Research facility, all of whom are a part of what makes Black & White FS Ltd what it is today.
Our Philosophy at B&W
At B&W, we believe in transparency and as the company name implies, we like things to be clearly stated in black and white. This way, through a clear understanding of each client’s hopes, goals and dreams, we will work with you to achieve those aspirations using appropriate wealth management services, financial strategies and investment products.
We provide a comprehensive on-going monitoring service for both Pensions and Investments where our emphasis is managing our clients risk and expectations.
