PHILLIPPINA PEMPEH

Financial Advisor

Phillippina is a powerhouse of a woman. She is a mother to twins and a teenager and if that isn’t enough she has chosen a career within financial services. Phillipina has over ten years in the industry, starting at Halifax Bank as a financial advisor. She transitioned into Wealth Management as a publicist for an FTSE 100. She witnessed and endured the male patriarchy in all its glory and yet made sure she did not allow it to change her spirit, leaving that energy at the revolving security-manned door! She soon landed a contract with the Financial Conduct Authority as Project Manager, heading regional events across the UK.

Managing a growing family also meant finding more autonomy in her role which fits around her day-to-day responsibilities, therefore becoming a self-employed Insurance Specialist quickly became the best route for her. She is passionate about empowering women to become savvier with their money whilst protecting what matters most – regardless of their current situation.
