About Us

Rod Hannam has run his own successful IFA firm in the past and has built up a loyal client following who are in regular contact with him both to review existing arrangements and to seek further advice as their circumstances change. We hope you will appreciate not only the quality of the advice offered by GS Financial Services Ltd but also the personal nature of that advice. When you contact our offices, you will be put through directly to your adviser or, if they are not available, one of our support staff will ensure that your message is passed to Rod for his action as quickly as possible. You will never be re-directed to a call centre in some far flung corner of the world or left for hours listening to music whilst on hold. At GS Financial Services Ltd we aim to provide truly independent advice provided by local professional advisers. Our initial meeting is free. We will work closely with Chartered Accountants Glover Stanbury & Co where appropriate, for example from a tax planning viewpoint. However, GS Financial Services Ltd is a separate company registered in England and Wales.

Rod Hannam is based in Glover Stanbury & Co’s Bideford office at 27 Bridgeland Street (but also visits the Barnstaple office on a regular basis). He is married to Rachel, who also works for the firm and they have two young sons. Rod has lived in North Devon all of his life and is an active member of Bideford Round Table. Rod holds the Chartered Insurance Institute Financial Planning Certificate, He was previously owner /director of Hannam Gilibanks & Associates Ltd, independent financial advisers and before that spent a number of years working for Towry Law a national firm of IFAs. Rod’s particular area of specialisation is Inheritance Tax planning, a subject on which he has run a number of seminars across North Devon in the last few years.
