Stephen Ford – APA, QFA

Stephen Ford QFA is a proud Welsh man who lives in Cobh Co Cork and is a Qualified Financial Advisor. Prior to Stephen’s career in Financial Services Stephen was a Professional Rugby Player and Coach, Stephen played professionally for Llanelli Scarlets and Bridgend and for Wales. When Stephen retired from playing Rugby, he
took the bold move to uproot and move to Cork with his wife Debbie and their 6- month-old baby daughter Rosie to become Head Coach at Highfield RFC.

Following his stint with Highfield RFC he was appointed head coach at Dolphin RFC where he is still actively involved to this day. Then in 2015 Stephen began his career in the financial sector as a Financial Advisor achieving APA and QFA professional qualifications in his first 2 years.

I was drawn towards a career in the financial services sector as I felt the life skills and Knowledge I acquired while working as a Professional Coach/ Director of Rugby were a perfect fit for building my own professional Financial Services Business.

Stephen is very much a people person and enjoys nothing more than helping people plan for their future and achieve they financial goals through his Financial Planning and Mortgage Business.
