Simon joined Blevins Franks France (previously Siddalls) in 2008. Before moving to France, he spent 11 years working as a financial adviser in Bournemouth.
Simon is an Associate of the Personal Finance Society (APFS). He is also a regulated adviser in France, authorised by the Autorité des Marchés Financiers (AMF).
Based in Aix-en-Provence, Simon commutes regularly to the surrounding departments, visiting clients in the region. His wider team is based at the Blevins Franks France head office in Bordeaux. He receives further support from a dedicated team of Client Services Officers as well as tax, pensions and investments specialists located in Malta and London.
In the early 1990s, Simon and his wife Julie enjoyed a temporary period of living in France. When the opportunity cropped up again in 2008, they decided to make France their permanent home. They live in Saint-Maximin-la-Sainte-Baume with their 17-year old twins.
A keen sportsman from a young age, Simon runs regularly to ward off the consequences of over-indulging, along with his running mate, Cookie the dog. He is a committee member of the local rugby club where he once coached, now organising other coaches and watching his sons play. In the summertime, Simon gets more active, playing cricket at Entrecasteaux and playing ‘social’ tennis for fun.
