Having been schooled in Portsmouth and starting her finance career at Barclays Bank in Commercial Road at the age of 16, she has grown a successful career which culminated in becoming founder and CEO of Nexus IFA. Last year the business - which provides financial planning, mortgage and inheritance advice alongside a full investment service - relocated to The Camber in the former HQ for Sir Ben Ainslie’s America’s Cup team.

Now Kerry, who was named Personality of the Year’ at this year’s Money Marketing awards, is immersing herself and her company back into city life. As part of that commitment, Nexus is sponsoring the Large Business of the Year category in The News Business Excellence Awards 2023.
