ANNA HUGHES

Chartered Financial Planner / Senior Technical Analyst

I have worked in a variety of roles in Financial Services for over 20 years. The role of Technical Adviser appeals to me as it allows me to combine my love of figures with the opportunity to interact with people.

Dealing with financial matters is not a task that people generally look forward to and yet managing their money properly is one of the most important areas of their lives. Being able to help with this through the work I do gives me great satisfaction.

Outside of work family and friends are most important to me. I have three lovely grandchilden who I adore. I am also the proud owner of a beautiful cross breed dog by the name of Robbie. Living near a wonderful park gives me the opportunity to go for long walks at the weekend.

I am also a member of a ladies darts team and, besides playing together we also holiday together having at least one long weekend a year when it is “ladies only” going to such places as Milan, Barcelona and Prague.

My husband and I are also keen quizers, attending local pub quizes on a regular basis. My favourite quiz is Eggheads and to ensure mind and body are exercised at the same time I use my home rowing machine whilst watching it.

When away from home one of my favourite places to visit is Cyprus, especially in September/October time when the sunsets are remarkable.

Any other spare time I have I love to just sit and read almost anything and everything to increase my knowledge.
