Verve Financial Planning is run by Chartered Financial Planners Stephanie Clark and Fiona Sharp who have over 40 years experience in financial services. We are independent financial advisers, and therefore we are not tied to any one financial provider.

We remain unbiased.

Stephanie Clark
Chartered Financial Planner

I have worked in financial services since 1989 and have been an IFA since 2000. I am a Chartered Financial Planner and hold many varied exams. My objective is to help people understand their financial makeup and the options open to them in a practical and straightforward manner.

My key specialities are in the areas of pensions and investments, but I also deal with Inheritance Tax and the protection of clients against ill health/early death.

I really enjoy my job and love to help clients understand their own financial position and to enable them to see what this means to them both now and for the future.

I am based in Cambridge and am married with two children.

Inheritance Tax Planning advice is not regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority.

Fiona Sharp
Chartered Financial Planner

I am a Chartered Financial Planner and I have been in the profession since 1995, following a first career as an Air Traffic Control Officer in the RAF. I’d like to think that my experience brings clear thinking and calmness to my current role, as well as the ability to listen sympathetically and to communicate carefully. It has also taught me to live for today, but to plan for tomorrow.

My real niche is financial planning on divorce, and I have extensive experience in this arena. If you need help with your post separation budgeting, or clear direction through a pensions maze, then I can guide you.

I have undergone rigorous (and continuous) advanced training in pensions and divorce as well as Collaborative practice and I am one of only a few IFAs in the country Accredited by Resolution (formerly the Family Law Society). I also hold the G60 Advanced pension exam.

I am based primarily in Cambridge and East Anglia, but also London and Stratford Upon Avon.

I am married and I enjoy cricket, travel, vintage and walking my dog.
