Ian Howard has been with Wellesley since 2006, and has been in the industry since 1990. People often ask Ian what he does: he says, simply, “I help people”.
With such a myriad of choices out there, Ian always asks clients what it is they do or don’t want to do, and takes it from there. Once he’s established a relationship with a client, he likes to keep in touch regularly to stay up to date with their interests – once they’re happy, he’s happy!
Out of Hours: Ian is married to Julie, and they live in East Preston with their two young sons, Louis and Harry, as well as Sid the dog. He would like to find some free time, however, being a Nottingham Forest fan, it’s probably best not to spend too much free time following sport!
Since meeting Ian Howard at a seminar given by Wellesley Investments and subsequently engaging him to act in our financial matters, we have been extremely satisfied in both the professional advice given and the efficient manner in which he has handled our affairs. He has always been approachable and supportive; we would not hesitate to recommend him.
Since investing with St James’s Place, through Ian Howard of Wellesley Wealth Advisory, I have seen my investment grow in a way I could never have imagined. I don’t really understand the stock market and am so glad to have found someone like Ian, whom I feel really knows the business and looks after my investment well. I’m only a small investor but he never makes me feel unimportant”
I have known Ian Howard since 2009 when St. James’s Place took over as our financial advisers. Almost immediately our position improved, following clear concise advice. Ian explains everything very clearly and in simple terms that one can easily understand. Ian is always on hand when we need his advice and has become a trusted good friend. I would highly recommend Ian and St. James’s Place to anyone needing financial advice or assistance. His continued commitment and sound advice has given us confidence for which we are most appreciative”
Over a number of years I have found the guidance and support from Ian Howard to be absolutely superb. Ian is the consummate professional, who has proven to be trustworthy and loyal – and his financial planning and support is something I would certainly recommend without hesitation”
