About Us

Family owned and family run

Established by Managing Director, Sharon Sutton in 2000, Thornton is a Chartered Financial Planning Firm providing Multi-jurisdictional Financial Planning Advice and Regulated Investment Advice to private individuals, trustees and business owners on the Isle of Man and in the UK.

The achievement of Chartered Financial Planning Firm status is the outward recognition of our passion for providing Financial Planning excellence through a team of highly qualified and experienced individuals.

Sharon is also a Fellow, Board Director and Vice President of the Personal Finance Society in the UK, tasked with helping the Board shape the Society’s future strategy for the long term benefit of consumers.

Director, Julian (Jools) Sutton, heads up Compliance for the firm and is also a Financial Planner.

Sharon and Jools are joined by Chartered Financial Planners, John Condon, Natalie Bush, Compliance Support Officer, Hazel Jordan and a Client Services Support team of Kate Brown and Clare McIlwaine. We are all salaried and none of the team have individual sales targets or sales related bonuses which we think is important.
