Samantha Secomb, Chartered Financial Planner and Managing Director, Pentins Financial Planners, Canterbury, Kent

Sam Secomb

Chartered Financial Planner and Managing Director

As Director of Business and shareholder, Samantha champions good business practices that she describes as: “Independent, unbiased and whole of market.”

She believes that access to financial products from all companies (rather than receiving restricted advice) is vital to providing the best for clients.

Sam loves nothing better than making a difference for the benefit of clients, and does not treat all accounts in the same way. She quickly recognised that a woman’s financial journey often took a different route to a man’s, which led her to launch a fresh and innovative brand called Women’s Wealth. Sam is frequently heard to state: “We are good for our clients and proud of ourselves,” And that is definitely the Pentins’ ethos. 


  • Fellow of the Personal Finance Society
  • Chartered Financial Planner
  • Master’s in Business Administration (MBA) with Warwick Business School. 

About Samantha

I live, breathe and love finance. But when I do find time, I like to horse ride, workout at the gym and dance salsa.
