Edward Harris - CEO & Chief Compliance Officer

Edward Harris

CEO & Chief Compliance Officer

Edward is the CEO and Chief Compliance Officer of Archway. His background includes over 10 years of high profile roles in derivatives trading, economic analysis, and consultancy with Fortune 500 companies.

After spending a great deal of that time in Asia, he decided in early 2008 to leave behind corporate life and moved permanently to Hong Kong. He spent the next 10 years building a successful financial advisory business with a particular focus on UK pensions.In 2018, his company joined the Holborn group and Edward moved his family to Orlando, Florida where he now lives with his wife and three daughters.

It was not long before Edward’s passion for providing clients with the highest quality pension advice led him back into the investment advisory business and also to the Holborn group, for whom he developed the utmost respect.

Edward is now busy ensuring that Archway is the USA’s leading UK pension advice specialist. This is achieved by combining experienced advisors, the strength of the Holborn group, and a unique and tailored client proposition designed to deliver the best possible outcome.

When not hard at work, Edward’s ideal evening is spent cooking dinner with his daughters, followed by a well-deserved glass of red wine with his wife while watching some F1 motorsport.
