David Fyfe

Managing Director

David, our Managing Director, has over 40 years’ worth of experience working in the financial services industry.  He obtained a first class honours degree in Mathematics at Sheffield University before joining Yorkshire-General as an actuarial student in 1972.  He then joined the company’s sales force and became Life Branch Sales Manager at Leeds in the early eighties. David set up his own firm in June 1993 following 7 years with a national Independent Financial Adviser. In April 2002, Fyfe Financial Limited was formed.

When David’s career in financial services started, the industry did not have the greatest of reputations. However, he has always believed in providing sound, good value for money advice and has often been described as a “safe pair of hands” by his clients.  David stopped advising clients in December 2012 in order to focus on the management of the business.

David has been married to Jean for over 47 years and has two sons, Stephen and Richard who are both Directors in the business. He has been a keen sportsman all his life, having played most sports with varying degrees of success. He still plays tennis and badminton as often as he can.

David has supported many charities over the years and, with his wife Jean and friends Nigel & Sandra Worthington, set up a Ball for the Children’s Hospital Charity, Sheffield in 1990. Originally intended as a “one-off” the Daffodil Ball has now passed its 28th year and raised over £1,000,000.
