A Portsmouth financial advisor has been appointed regional chairman of the Society of Will Writers.

Steven Blofield, managing director of both SBA Financial Ltd and SBA Solutions Ltd, has become the organisation's new regional voice.

He has been a qualified financial planner for 14 years and also a wills, trusts, and estate planner for seven.

Mr Blofield said: 'Part of my role as regional chairman of the SWW is to promote the importance of having a will properly prepared.

'But, equally, the importance of having it prepared by a person who is a member of the SWW – someone who is fully trained.'

The SWW is the UK's industry body for the will-writing industry.

It has more than 2,000 members nationwide.

SBA Financial Ltd and SBA Solutions Ltd are headquartered in Portsmouth Road, Cosham.
