I have worked in financial services for almost 20 years and my belief is that our clients should always be provided with the best possible service experience and this is what we always strive to achieve at Cornerstone. My areas of expertise concentrate on our private client wealth management, and I specialise on advising on trusts, investments, personal tax planning and complex retirement planning options.

Alongside my advisory role I am responsible for the operational management of Cornerstone and I put the success of the company down to the ethos of the business and having a great team of people who work within it. Our clients really trust in the advice that they receive safe in the knowledge that their financial decisions are in safe hands. I joined Cornerstone from my role as Managing Director of Towergate Financial Scotland Ltd and I am a founding Partner of Cornerstone. I am married with four children and spend my spare time playing golf (badly) and supporting my local football team – Motherwell.

Partner

Tel: 0131 514 2775

I am a co-founder of Cornerstone and have over 20 years’ of financial services experience with a number of senior positions within this sector. I set up this business, as I believed there was a need for appropriate financial planning rather than advisers selling products.

Our focus is different to other practices, we deliver a full financial planning and wealth management service and we have shaped an approach that puts the client at the heart of what we do. This ensures that the client is always fully engaged from the very start of their relationship with Cornerstone. Delivering on our service promises is what sets us apart from the pack and as such we demand high standards from our people but we make sure they enjoy the work along the way.
