Team

Matthew Clark

Director, Chartered Financial Planner


Matthew’s career began in 1995, with blue-chip financial firms Thomson Reuters and Standard Life. It was there he began developing the in-depth knowledge and expertise of financial planning, pensions, tax, trusts and investments that his clients benefit from today.

In 2013, Seabrook Clark Ltd, Milford & Dormor Financial Planning’s parent company became a reality after friends approached Matthew, looking for an independent and trustworthy financial advisor who could look at their situation with holistic eyes. In 2014, Matthew co-founded Milford & Dormor Financial Planning Ltd with Milford & Dormor Solicitors.

Matthew’s qualifications and affiliations speak volumes about his commitment and passion for clients and the sector within which he works. He is a Chartered Financial Planner, Certified Financial Planner, Trust and Estates Practitioner, Later Life Accredited Advisor and a Fellow of the Personal Finance Society. In 2005 and 2006, he was the winner of investment categories of Money Management Financial Planner of the Year. And in 2013, he was one of three finalists for the Chartered Financial Planner of the Year Award.

An outdoor enthusiast, Matthew loves running marathons, road biking and fell walking. And when the weather turns nasty and he’s forced indoors, he enjoys listening to classical music.
