Practice Manager/Paraplanner

As the Practice Manager here at Newbridge Financial Planning Ltd, I oversee the day to day running of our busy office and am responsible for team development while ensuring our clients are at the heart of everything we do.  I am also the Senior Investment and Pension Paraplanner which gives me the opportunity to utilise and build on my existing experience and knowledge to provide a unique and high level of service for our clients.

I have brought over 18 years financial services experience to the company and have worked for several financial firms. Newbridge Financial Planning Ltd have demonstrated a level of dedication to their clients, professionalism and team spirit that is unrivaled. I thoroughly enjoy being part of this team, ensuring the best outcome for our clients.

I hold the Chartered Insurance Institute’s Certificate in Life & Pensions, The Certificate in Pensions Administration as well as the Certificate in Financial Services Operations and am currently working towards the Diploma in Financial Planning.

I am a mother of two boys, a teenage and a pre-schooler so I don’t have much ‘spare time’, but I enjoy relaxing with a good book, walks by the sea and the good company of friends and family.

Amanda Thompson

Independent Financial Planner

I have worked in Financial Services for a number of years starting as a Personal Banker with Northern Bank a little over 20 years ago. I have always worked closely with all of my clients, they are the most important part of my job.

I am delighted to say that I am now a Financial Consultant with Newbridge Financial Planning. I was attracted to Newbridge for many reasons, the professionalism, the talent and expertise of the whole team but what impressed me most was how important their clients are. They are placed at the heart of everything and this is my number one priority too.
