Adviser’s book recalls 25 years in the industry

Churchouse Financial Planning director Keith Churchouse celebrated 25 years in the financial services business last week with a guest list including the mayor of Guildford.

Last year, Churchouse published a book, Sign Here, Here and Here, Journey of a Financial Adviser, documenting his exp- eriences since joining the ind- ustry as a bank clerk.

Proceeds from book sales at Churchouse’s silver anniversary celebrations at the County Club in Guildford went to Mayor Marsha Moseley’s chosen charity, Combat Stress.

Churchouse says: “It has been an amazing experience and certainly is not over yet. With the state pension age increasing, I calculate I should be able to celebrate 50 years service before I hang up my pen.

Churchouse has since written another book, Journey of Div-orce, Addicted to Wedding Cake. His third, Nagged, Tagged and Bagged, Journey of Recovery, is due out in May.
