Before joining Simmons Gainsford Financial Services, he worked as both a paraplanner and an adviser in conjunction with a large accountancy practice, as well as being active in the management and operational requirements of the financial advisory business. This allowed him to develop an extensive understanding of the role’s technical aspects through working closely with a wide range of individual and corporate clients, particularly in the areas of protection, investments, retirement and inheritance tax planning. He is an ardent believer in treating customers fairly and ensuring that clients fully understand the implications of their undertakings.

Having joined Simmons Gainsford Financial Services several years ago, Darryl quickly became intimately involved with all aspects of the firm, providing technical support and guidance to the advisers whilst also heading up the technical department. After a short time, through development of this role, Darryl gradually became more involved with the compliance requirements of the firm and subsequently commenced working within the compliance department. Since this time, Darryl’s focus has increasingly been on ensuring that compliance is at the core of the business, and he continues to look to enhance the underlying culture and operations of the company in order to exemplify both a compliant and commercial organisation.
