He is a business principal at Fairstone Financial Management Northern Ireland. Established in 2007 by Peter and Sean Larkin as First Financial Management Ltd., the firm joined Fairstone in 2014, adopting the Fairstone brand from the outset.

Here, Peter discusses why they chose to operate as Fairstone Northern Ireland from day one and the impact this has had on the growth of his business along with an insight into his future growth plans.

"I can’t recommend Fairstone enough, they have really taken my business to the next level. From where we have been, to where we are now, to where I know we will go, the proof so far is in the pudding...Our numbers have increased, everything has increased. As an IFA business, I couldn’t recommend Fairstone any more."
