Alison Taylor

Alison Taylor was born & bred in Staffordshire. After graduating from the University of Birmingham in International Studies in 1981, she moved to Oxford, with a scholarship, to train in mental rehabilitation and Social Welfare with the Richmond Fellowship.

She is a member of the Personal Finance Society, holds their Diploma and is looking to achieve Chartered status in the near future.

Having practiced as an independent Financial Advisor (IFA) since 1983, she has specialised in the investment and protection of damages awards for the last 25 years.

Alison has been involved in many leading cases both from the investment perspective and as a Court Expert for Structured Settlements, Periodic Payment Orders and Personal Injury Trusts.

She regularly runs workshops for lawyers on various aspects of her role as an IFA working alongside the legal profession and has been featured both in the mainstream and legal press.

Alison is an active supporter and trainer for APIL, PIBA, Headway, the SIA and AVMA. The Guardian neatly summarised her work as that of a ‘Financial Social Worker who loves her job’.
