Spotlight on Eve Whiteman – Independent Financial Adviser

Hi Eve, let’s start with work; what does a ‘normal’ day constitute for you? eve

Initially looking at market news and industry developments then a mixture of client meetings, paperwork and following up on phone calls and emails.

When you were a child, what job did you want to do?
I loved the TV programme LA Law and wanted to be a barrister.

Work in silence or with music, background chatter and noise?
It depends what work I’m doing – any type of detailed technical work requires absolute silence!

What’s your greatest moment working here so far?
Winning the Entire FS crazy golf tournament with Vicky (we thrashed Jeff and Stephen in the final putt off).

What’s your drink of choice while you’re working?
Tea.

And when you’re not working?
Water and wine.

Name the best place you’ve ever visited?
Niagara Falls.

And how about the place that’s currently top of your ‘to visit’ list?
We’ve got a wedding in Bucharest, Romania, next year and are looking forward to visiting (Dracula’s) Bran Castle.

If you have the choice between staying in and going out, which do you normally choose and what do you normally do?
I don’t get to go out very often so I always jump at the chance!

What’s the one talent you have that people in your office are unaware of?
Flat-pack furniture assembly is my forte.

What would your ‘Desert Island’ disc, film and book be?
Book would be Gilead by Marilynne Robinson, film would be Dangerous Liaisons with Glenn Close and John Malkovich and I couldn’t choose just one album – I’ve got an eclectic taste in music so it would have to be a varied playlist.

Do you prepare well in advance or are you a ‘last minute’ person?
Advance planning is my middle name.

Who’d play you in the film of your life?
I’m a big fan of Sharon Horgan’s humour and would like her to play me and make me funny.

DIY or call an expert?
DIY.

If you had to compete at the Olympics, in any event, real or fake, what would you choose?
Badminton.

Do you ‘do’ Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn? Are they useful?
I use Facebook regularly to keep in touch with friends and family and share photos.

Physical book or e-book? Do you still buy a paper? Which one?
Physical book always. I love the experience of going to the bookshop and the feel of a book. My favourite gift to receive is a book (I’m very low-maintenance!).
