About Andy

I’ve been in the finance industry for most of my working life, initially starting work as a trainee accountant.

Over the years, I’ve developed the knowledge and expertise to deal with most areas of financial planning, particularly those associated with investments, pensions, and long-term care.

Starting Escott Wealth Management and having my previous clients confirm they’re happy to continue receiving advice from me has been the proudest moment of my career.

Most of my clients are either approaching retirement or are retired. But I’m happy to help anyone who’s open to the idea of taking financial advice or feels that speaking to an independent specialist will benefit them.

The things I enjoy most about my job are making financial matters easier to understand for my clients and helping them achieve their financial goals and objectives. I also love the trust my clients place in me.

Outside of work

I enjoy most sports, but mainly of the watching variety now! I also enjoy reading thrillers, normally the darker the better.

I like to go out for a good meal and socialise with family and friends whenever the chance arises. I like to travel, especially if there’s a guarantee of sunshine!

What our
clients say

My husband and I were looking for some assistance with investing our pensions but struggling to know what to do for the best. Andy was professional, open, and transparent, and he made the whole process very straightforward. We would highly recommend using his services.

Jeanette and Paul Martin

Andy has worked with us since 2018, and we are exceptionally happy with the service we have received. He is thoroughly professional and has provided us with excellent advice in an easy-to-understand and friendly manner.

Rob and Philippa Bancroft

Andy has provided financial management for my parents for several years. I now hold power of attorney for their affairs, and Andy has given us relevant advice on Inheritance Tax and estate management promptly and with clear, detailed documentation. He is very personable in his manner and approach and has been most helpful.

Barry Wilson and Rosie Binham-Wilson

As an accountant specialising in the financial services sector, I know a lot of IFAs. But I’ve chosen to deal with Andy and the team at Escott Wealth Management to look after my own investments.
