Thomas Dobner has been working in the financial services industry for more than a decade in variety of occupations for a number of well regarded UK financial institutions.

His financial career started in 1998 as a trainee financial adviser for Pearl Assurance where he studied for various industry exams whilst working as a home service  insurance agent.

Having obtained the Full Financial Planning Certificate (FPC) accreditation as well as the Certificate in Mortgage Advice & Practice (CeMAP) qualification within a two year period he then left Pearl Assurance to join Woolwich / Barclays as an in-branch customer adviser.

During his seven year career with Woolwich / Barclays he held various different banking roles within a number of branches around South Devon including Exeter, Totnes and Tavistock, but primarily in Torquay and Paignton.

In 2007 an opportunity to break free from the constraints of bank employment arose and Thomas became a self employed financial adviser (something he had aspired to throughout his career) working through a large national network of brokers within the offices of a large local estate agent.


Sadly in 2009, after less than two years in this role, the estate agent went into administration due to the severe recession that hit the UK and Thomas was left needing to find an alternative means to continue his trade.

It was then that Thomas, along with another colleague from the estate agency where he worked, Keith Bowden, decided to go it alone by setting up their own estate agency business (Bowden & Partners) alongside Thomas' newly established eponymous financial services business.

In what little spare time Thomas has he loves to spend time outdoors wandering around the South Devon coast or the wilds of Dartmoor with his camera in hand taking photographs for his part-time photography business Dual Aspect Photography.

He also enjoys designing and creating websites; a skill which he has taught himself over the last few years and which he is continuing to learn and improve.
