Michael Harms AFPS

Director & Chartered Financial Planner

Mike is the director and founder of Medical & General.  Having spent his younger years in Kent where he was brought up, he moved to London and pursued work in the banking industry before going to university and completing a Financial Services Degree.  It is here his passion for financial advice ignited and the dream of running his own Financial Advice business formed.

Following his degree, Mike choose to complete his FPC1 & 2 exams immediately after leaving university, then pursuing a period of time in Hedge Fund recruitment in the city.

After a number of years, Mike fell back on his degree and qualifications and took up a training role with Santander.  Whilst working here, Mike and his wife, originally from Clyst St Mary, moved down to Devon to have their first child Freddie.

Quickly after moving to Devon, Mike took a role with Wesleyan Assurance Society, where he carved out his knowledge of the medical sector and the NHS Pension providing support and advice to GPs across the whole of Devon.

In 2014, the decision was made to fulfil the dream of running his own independent, holistic financial advice business and Medical & General was created.  Mike continued with his studies and became a chartered financial planner in 2017 ensuring he continues to provide clients with the highest level of support and service backed by a strong technical knowledge base.

Fun fact, Mike is now a keen cold water swimmer and can often be found in the sea at Sidmouth, early mornings on a weekend!
