Laurence Cummings
Financial Consultant

Laurence joined Riverside Financial Consultants in May 2019 when we acquired Gorman Peters Associates, but sadly Laurence passed away unexpectedly in August 2021.

He became an indispensable part of many clients lives and thoroughly enjoyed the advising side of the business and was looking forward to many more years doing the job he loved. Laurence had a passion for helping others and gave his time generously, dedicating himself for the benefit of others, most notably with the Openwork Foundation, both on the committee and taking part on the Cycle Challenges and locally with grassroots sports. Inspiring people to engage and participate in local grassroots sport and take pride in their local area, Laurence leaves behind a thriving legacy and many people’s lives have been changed for the better because of his efforts.

Our experienced and friendly team will ensure that we continue to look after Laurence’s clients in the future.
