Up Close: Rory's Story as young achiever flies high with renowned financial experts Lyndhurst

A success story is always satisfying to read about. When it involves a rising young star, it's even more rewarding.

Lyndhurst Financial Management's Rory Albon has been working hard to pass his exams that will help him progress at such a renowned company.

Talented Rory graduated from the University of Portsmouth in 2012 after studying Business Studies, including a year working at Microsoft's UK head office in Reading.

From there, he joined Amazon's then brand-new graduate scheme, as one of the two graduates on their Operations program. He stayed at Amazon, working across a range of roles in both their Fulfilment Centres and Head Office for nearly 10 years.

"During the start of the Covid pandemic, I decided to begin studying for the numerous exams required to become a Financial Adviser," humble Rory tells Nub News, sharing his journey as he explains: "Once I had a few under my belt, I joined Lyndhurst Financial Management Ltd as a Paraplanner, providing technical support to their adviser team, across all areas they work on, including pensions, investments, insurance, and mortgages.

"Earlier this year, after successfully completing all the exams needed, I reached my goal of began my journey as an Assistant Financial Planner at Lyndhurst Financial Management," Rory says with pride after all his hard work, adding: "I'm now focused on my updated goal of helping my clients achieve their financial goals, whilst continuing to study towards Chartered status."

No wonder Lyndhurst are delighted to see young achievers such as Rory shine. [Or to give him his well-earned, full title: Rory Albon - DipPFS, Cert CII (MP & ER), BA (Hons), LCGI]
