Andrew Hirst
Partner & Chartered Financial Planner

Joined Equilibrium in 2011

I’d known Equilibrium for quite a while before joining the firm and had a good understanding and respect for how they worked for their clients. To me, deciding to work for them was the easiest decision I’ve ever made. I’m from an accountancy background originally, providing financial and tax mitigation advice to high net worth clients, and my strengths are in investment, trust and estate and pension planning.

What I love about working for Equilibrium is making a positive difference to people’s lives and providing them with financial confidence to do the things they really want to do in life. In my role I’m able to do that regularly, but I think my most memorable customer success is probably the financial plan I created for a client, which enabled her to retire early so she could enjoy more years with her husband, who had dementia.

In my spare time I like spending time with my family and enjoy football, skiing and playing guitar in a rock band.
