I spent my early years qualifying and studying to be a Mechanical Design Engineer, however in my early twenties I decided that engineering was not for me and I wanted to follow a career in financial services.
I learned the ropes at a number of blue chip insurance/financial services companies before progressing to become a successful mortgage adviser.
I then went on to join forces with my brother George as a financial planner in his newly established Wealth Management business based in Knutsford. I helped, as an integral part of the team, to propel the business to great success which eventually led to the acquisition of the business by AXA/Bluefin in 2008. I spent a further six years at Bluefin as a Chartered Financial Planner before they were acquired by Towry and I decided to leave at that point to take my career in a different direction.
In 2016, given my years of experience in dealing with professional and high net worth clients I decided to establish my own business Watterson Financial Planning Ltd.
I am in the very fortunate position that my excellent support team who have worked with me for many years have decided to join me in this new venture along with my brother George.
Away from the office, I like to spend time with my wife, my daughters, study tai chi as well as taking my Ducati motorbike for the occasional ride.
