 Lisa  Conway Hughes

Lisa Conway Hughes

Chartered Financial Planner
Westminster Wealth Management

After 8 years as a financial adviser, Lisa realised that most households, no matter what their income, face very similar dilemmas when it comes to money. The motivation to set up Miss Lolly came when she fell pregnant and started to think more seriously about her own financial future. Lisa realised how lucky she was to have the knowledge and tools to put in place everything she needed to ensure that her new family would be financially secure. She also noticed that a few hints and tips are all most clients need to restore their confidence to tackle their day to day finances by themselves. When helping clients with their financial foundations, Lisa was being asked very similar questions, so thought it would be useful to share how I help them.

By day Lisa works at a wealth management firm in the City of London. She is a Chartered Financial Adviser and also a Fellow of the Personal Finance Society (PFS). This is the highest qualification a financial adviser can hold and less than 2% of PFS members have reached this. She is also a member of MENSA – the high IQ Society with an IQ of 148.

Why did you start investing?

"I started investing embarrassingly recently in order to save for my future with my boyfriend. He works for AJ Bell, an investment company, and we have chosen to invest with them. I also save into a personal cash Isa as well as managing different savings pots." Kate Beioley, Financial Times

"I started investing in the lead up to the dot-com bubble and, like a lot of early investors made a lot of money.. on paper, then promptly lost it all as the markets fall back. But, keen lessons learned, and with it a sharper edge for analysis, I began to understand how to invest as opposed to just throwing money at the markets. It took a long while, but I am now a fully paid up member to the idea of compounding investment returns."- Jeremy Naylor, IG

"When I started working as a journalist I found myself speaking to a lot of financial professionals for work, and inevitably they would end up telling me that I should start investing. After about a week I caved and began taking their advice" Tom Dines, Investors Chronicle

"I started investing very small amounts in my mid 20s because I felt embarrassed if clients asked me if I was doing what I was recommending and I actually wasn’t. I pulled my financial socks up in my early 30s though and started to really focus on my pension and ISA planning. It has given me a huge peace of mind to know that I am being sensible and doing the most that I can at this (expensive)stage of my life."Lisa Conway Hughes,Westminster Wealth Management
