Matt Baker


I began my career in the City of London working for Investment Fund Managers Sun Life and later Alliance Capital, an American firm. I guess I was following in my Dad’s footsteps as he was a fund manager for many years. This came to a stop when a hobby of mine became a bit more than just a hobby and I moved up to Yorkshire to join a brass band (seriously, no joke!).

Whilst in Yorkshire I took my Financial Planning Certificate and worked for Scottish Equitable as a broker consultant (as well as playing the cornet). Eventually I met my wife and after a brief, nine month tour of the world, decided to move back down to the South of England. I had spells working for Scottish Life and Clerical Medical as a senior consultant. I decided that I wanted to become self employed in 2005 and joined my brother in the Openwork network.

I met Mike Cooke during this time and we worked well together on a number of projects before deciding to join forces at Enable in 2007. I am continuing to study towards achieving chartered status.


I live in Saffron Walden with my wife and 2 daughters.
