The team at Mclay James

Colin Reid – Managing Director

Dip PFS Cert CII Independent Financial Adviser

Colin has over 30 years’ experience in the financial services industry and helped set Mclay James up in 2003 after being involved with one of the largest Independent Financial Advisory Firms in the County. He is a keen sportsman having played Rugby for many years and is still involved with Towcestrians RFC, although as family man with 3 children and 2 boys regularly playing, more time is spent on the side-line than on the pitch.

Colin is a fully qualified Financial Planner and uses his high level of technical knowledge, combined with the drive and determination needed to succeed in providing a high level of service to his clients. Colin plays a key role in the on-going development of Mclay James Independent Financial Advisers.

Nick Burditt – Adviser

Dip PFS Cert CII Independent Financial Adviser

Nick has 20 years’ experience in financial services, as a fully qualified Financial Planner. He specialises in all aspects of Personal and Corporate Financial Planning.

Away from work, he now enjoys watching rugby, having represented the East Midlands and East Northants in his playing days. Another favourite sport is skiing, although this does lack a little finesse possibly!

Another large part of his time is spent with his son, standing on the side of a pitch kicking or throwing different shaped balls around….

Dave Walton – Adviser

Dip PFS Cert CII Independent Financial Adviser

Dave has over 30 years’ experience in the financial services industry, dealing with all aspects of financial planning including pensions, investment, protection, mortgages and equity release.

Away from work he continues to play 5-a-side football and more recently discovered OCRs (Obstacle Course Racing), having completed events such as Suffering Legends and Man versus Mountain and even been lucky enough to qualify for both the UK and the World Championships in 2015.

Dave loves spending time with his family and his grand-daughter

Yvonne Taylor – Administrative Support
