Richard is married with three children and two grandchildren. No longer able to enjoy his first two passions of sailing and rugby he can now be found most weekends on the fairways of his local golf club, but as golfers know, that handicap just does not come down quickly enough!

Nick Perris - Director

Nick qualified as an actuary in 1989 and currently focuses on the technical and systems aspects of Cabot Trustees to complement Richard’s role. He also supports a SSAS business as well as designing and developing software for operating SIPPs and SSASs.


Nick enjoys cycling to keep fit and to see the world.
