Raffaele Castaldo

Independent Financial Adviser

I’m an independent financial adviser (IFA) specialising in financial planning. I provide new and ongoing advice relating to retirement and pensions, as well as investments and protection.

My role also involves elements of paraplanning, including cashflow planning. I also carry out admin work, as well as lead generation.

My spare time revolves around keeping fit, whether that’s cycling, running, hiking, or going to the gym.

The diploma is the high-quality route to meet the standards required for providing financial advice. The programme is designed to reflect the role of an IFA, providing individuals with a thorough understanding and the practical skills to apply in practice.
