Jeffrey Gouk, Financial Adviser and Founder of Hardy’s Financial

“This year, I’m delighted to be celebrating my fortieth year in the profession. Over the years, I’ve helped many private clients and business owners to achieve financial freedom. I’ve successfully arranged investments in residential and commercial property, constructed risk controlled investment portfolios and guided clients in wealth management. Looking back, the highlights of my career have been founding Hardy’s Financial in 2006 and taking on my company partner Richard O’Fee in 2020. I always look forward to building long-lasting relationships with my clients and hope to help many new clients for years to come.

Two subjects that are always on my mind are financial planning and wealth management. I love observing the development of my children’s careers, and take a keen interest in my grandchildren as they progress on their journey through school. Living in Belfast, Northern Ireland, I have plenty of opportunities to relax sailing or fly fishing—my two favourite pastimes. I once flew a solo glider, although I decided that navigation at sea was a far safer option!”
