Matthew Britton

Matthew Britton

It's not how much money you make, but how much money you keep, how hard it works for you, and how many generations you keep it for." — Robert Kiyosaki. A cracking book for those with an interest in financial literacy.

Building a relationship of trust is the foundation of my approach. My relationship with each client starts with listening, establishing values from which we can create a bespoke & holistic strategy.

Wealth planning with deVere Italia is very much holistic, covering areas such as protection planning, income protection, retirement planning, savings and investment planning, and tax efficient strategies.

I relax by cooking, watching any live sport notably Rugby, reading current events or simply organizing the next trip away. My passion for current events started when I studied politics at college, to then later take international relations as my degree. The institution of finance is a constant change with very little teaching or understanding. My goal is to help professionals live a fulfilled life and one they can pass onto their children and generations beyond.
