In addition, ECFS is directly authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority, enabling us to recommend and buy or sell insurance or investment products, and to implement this on behalf of our clients.

David retired from the firm at the end of March 2020, leaving fellow Directors Philip Giles and Gary Bennett, alongside Suresh Sreedharan, Clare Van Belkum and Eve Allum as advisers of the firm. Our administration team are Claudia Mitchell, Sonia Whiskin and Jacqui Charleston.

Our adviser team offer advice on all aspects of financial planning with particular expertise in investments, pension planning and inheritance tax protection.

Your plans for the future...

We work in close partnership with our clients, gathering financial information to help us analyse current financial positioning, and to make effective recommendations for ensuring a financially secure future.

We take a broad look at the entire finance spectrum, and what is available to you. We discuss what is in your best short and long-term interests, implement appropriate plans, monitor progress and adjust your plan to suit changing circumstances.

We provide comprehensive long-term financial strategies, down to one-off straight-forward advice in one or more specific areas including:

  • Life Assurance/Protection
  • Income Replacement Cover
  • Pensions and Retirement Planning
  • Investments
  • Inheritance Tax Planning - Mortgages/Equity Release/Long Term Care Planning


I have dealt with Edmund Carr for over 20 years regarding my tax affairs, which have always been dealt with speedily and efficiently. As I approached my retirement, I also contacted David Carr for advice regarding my pension planning, some 4 years ago, with a view to retiring this year (2018) if possible. David’s understanding of my objectives, combined with his clear explanations of my options, and his invaluable advice, have helped to bring my retirement plans to maturity at the end of March. So, many thanks David, we got there a bit earlier than originally planned!
