With over 30 years of experience in the private client sector, Fairchild specialises in working with sportspeople as well as clients in media and entertainment industry. He also advises entrepreneurs, family offices, non-UK domiciled individuals and professional practices. At the same time, as a passionate advocate of young sports talent and improving financial literacy, he has collaborated with sports organisations to develop a wide-ranging education and life-skills programme for under 18 and under 21 footballers. The programme helps young players understand the tax and financial issues they face and how to save for life after football.

The skill sets, technical knowledge and dedication to delivering exceptional client service is already very clear to me.
