Ray Blake DipPFS

Financial Adviser

Meet Ray

Ray has worked in financial services since 1983. His years of experience have taught him that ‘telling it like it is’ is the best way to give sound and steady advice in an industry that has seen many changes.

Sociable and easy to talk to, Ray enjoys being part of the Talking Finances team where knowledge and learning are freely shared.
As a family man with three children, he knows the value of investing in the community, which is why he devotes much of his spare time to serving his local parish council in the village of Ickleford, near Hitchin.


  • Diploma in Financial Planning (DipPFS)

What do you enjoy most about your job?

Helping my clients achieve their dreams in retirement.


In an age where financial scams pose a real threat, it’s important to make sure you do not take financial advice from any firm not registered with the FCA, or from any adviser who does not hold a valid Statement of Professional Standing.
