About the speaker

​Colin Williams

Senior Independent Financial Adviser, Lloyd & Whyte

Colin has over 20 years’ experience in helping dentists with their financial planning as a Senior Independent Financial Adviser with Lloyd & Whyte. He appreciates the unique circumstances that many dentists have, in terms of their working lives and their retirement options, with consideration to the NHS pension scheme. He learnt very early on that people are very individual and so their financial plans should also reflect their individual needs and desires.
