Linda van Meurs

Financial Planner

Linda has been working with clients to help them achieve financial freedom and turn their dreams and aspirations into financial reality, for over a decade. 

She loves nothing better than understanding a client’s goals, translating their existing pension/investments statements (which are often confusing) and fitting the pieces of the jigsaw together.  Linda’s innate ability to presents this information ensures her clients can better understand their position and visualise their future and its possibilities. 

Outside of work, Linda likes to spend time with family and friends, walk the dog, travel, camp (occasionally glamp), ski and run, though in reality she spends most of her time ferrying around and supporting her daughters at synchronised swimming, football, and Scouts.  

Likes: partaking in charity challenge events (those that are within her physical capacity).

Dislikes: Giving up (and the taste of butter).

I would most like to share lunch with: Barack Obama, Ben Fogle and Michael Bublé to name but a few.

Evaluating a Financial Advisor is tricky – investment and financial planning never yield instant results. However, I have no hesitation in recommending Linda. I started in 2007 when I became disillusioned with the overly aggressive commission-driven adviser I previously had. I have been using Linda for long-term financial planning as well as in connection with other financial matters such as mortgage, insurance, etc. The advice and guidance I have received have always been clear and cogent. Linda is both patient, approachable, and responsive. Her consistent and thoroughly professional approach engenders confidence – exactly what you need when you entrust your long-term financial planning to someone else.

Linda has really helped us to understand our current financial position and our needs at retirement. Her approach was very professional and the clarity with which she explained sometimes complex information and her ongoing support in deepening our understanding of our financial situation, made us feel confident in our financial decision making. We would be very happy to recommend Linda’s financial planning service.

For anyone looking for a Financial Adviser to take an overview of their various investments, pensions and benefits, I have no hesitation in recommending Linda van Meurs at Athena Wealth Planning. Athena Wealth Planning are a fee based adviser, so any commissions received are offset against your fees, meaning any advice is for your benefit, not theirs. I have found them particularly useful to go through all my various work benefits and pension, and have a very useful tool to project future income and how different decisions made now will affect that going forward. They do all the hard, boring, work for you, and give you the confidence you are making the right decisions, and make sure you understand why.
