Phil Cockrell

Director / Chartered Financial Adviser

Phil is a Compliance Director for Investing Ethically who has spent over 15 years with the firm. His specialist qualifications include long term care fee planning and equity release, and he has achieved Chartered status.

Even before joining Investing Ethically, Phil had already enjoyed an environmental background.

All three are values that he strongly defends, both in his personal life, with wife Jo and sons, Charlie and Thomas, and his professional life, where he is revered as a vital member of the IE team.
