Ian Watson

Independent Financial Planner

After 25 years in Accountancy, both in industry and the City, Ian changed career in 2004 to qualify as an IFA. This led to advice roles in London, Portsmouth, Newbury and Chester before he joined SFIA (now part of Amber River) in January 2023.

Ian is one of the few multi-discipline “Double Chartered” financial professionals (CISI and CIMA) in the UK. He is wills-trained, a qualified mortgage adviser, and previously ran his own Buy to Let limited company. This gives him a holistic ‘one-stop’ perspective of complex financial planning issues for both individuals and businesses, and how they intersect. This knowledge and experience, coupled with an ability to work at the same level as other professional advisers, ensures clients receive truly ‘joined-up’ advice.

Any spare time outside of work is spent skiing, golfing or playing tennis - as well as running around after his “semi-detached” daughter!
