Meet David Cooper: Financial Expert | United Advisers Marine

My career started at Lloyds bank in the UK and, after making my way up the ranks, I moved abroad to work as an international financial adviser, and I’ve worked in this space for the rest of my career.

Having worked with international clients for the majority of my career, and being an expat myself, I understand how it feels to live and work abroad. This really helps when working with crew who are looking to settle back on land or who are no longer tax domiciled in their home country.

My favourite thing about working in the superyacht industry is how fast it moves. The energy and dynamism crew bring to meetings is infectious. Also, crew can save significant sums quickly, so it’s gratifying to be able to work with them and help them achieve financial independence at a young age.

I echo many of the UAM team when I mention that a bonus of working with superyacht crew is being able to provide financial advice in idyllic locations.
