A SOUTHAMPTON firm is taking part in a national event to re-connect people with their money.

NorthStar Wealth Management, a firm of chartered financial planners, is running the free, one-hour digital sessions for the annual Financial Planning Week.

The event, which is running from October 5-11, is a national campaign to help engage people with their money and raise awareness of the importance of financial planning.

James Thompson, one of the founders of NorthStar Wealth Management said: “Financial Planning Week is a great opportunity for us to help people in the local area with their finances and work through how they can best achieve their goals in life.

“We want to help people re-connect with their money, better understand their financial options and take the rights actions towards their goals.”
