Who We Are

Whilst Lincox Ltd trading as Cox & Company Financial Planning was only registered in 2015, the roots of the family based practice date back to the late 1960s.

The family heritage commenced with Simon’s introduction to financial services in the mid-1980s by his father, with whom he worked alongside.  On his father’s retirement in 1990 and during the following years, Simon expanded the original core family business and in 1995, joined forces with his sister, Hilarie, and founded Cox & Company.  

This entity continued until the formation of Cox & Company Financial Planning, and integration with the successful financial advice practice of Tim Linford in 2016.  Naomi Shellard, as another family member, brings many years administration experience, having joined Cox & Company in 1998.
