This week Sam is joined by Chris Burke, Partner at The Spectrum IFA Group, based in their Barcelona office. Before making the brave decision to head to Spain Chris had no experience in financial planning or speaking Spanish! The odds were against him and he was in for a tough start to his new life abroad. Chris is very honest with us today, he shares his career journey, the highs and lows of his lifestyle change and he gives some great advice to anyone who is thinking about doing the same. He provides a fascinating insight into how the financial profession works over in Spain and shares the realities vs the expectations. We hope you enjoy it.
