Valiant Wealth are independent financial advisors in Italy. We assist expats across the globe with independent financial advice.
Valiant Wealth was established to address the financial planning needs of the ever-growing population of internationally-mobile people.
Our clients cover a broad spectrum from expat retirees, internationally-mobile workers in industries such as Oil and Gas to professionals who have worked in the UK for a long period before returning to their homeland or working elsewhere. All of these groups have one thing in common: a need for high-quality, bespoke financial advice that takes into account their unique set of circumstances.
Our network is equipped with the required licenses and regulation to advise on both insurance and investment products. We are truly international meaning that we can provide our services to clients in almost every corner of the globe.
MEET THE TEAM
Tom Goold and Adam Smith are the founders, directors, client advisors and driving force of Valiant Wealth.
Tom started his career with a large international financial services company in South Africa in 2012. He worked his way up from a client services role to become one of the most respected consultants in the region. Relocation to Italy followed in 2015 when he got married and is now settled in Rome with two children.
Adam’s journey started following graduation with Hewlett Packard in Barcelona in 2001. In the years that followed he worked for a number of multinationals in various positions before a stint as a commodity broker in 2008. This led him to a position with Bloomberg in the City of London and he subsequently spent five years as a consultant for a financial advisory in Rome before leaving to establish Valiant Wealth. Adam’s wife is Italian and they have two children.
Away from work both Tom and Adam enjoy spending quality time with their families. Tom is relentlessly pursuing a sub three-hour marathon while Adam is looking for more balance in his life on a stand-up paddleboard.
