Chartered Financial Planner

Isle of Man born, John began his career in Financial Services in 1990 with Friends Provident International (FPI) in Castletown where he qualified as a Chartered Financial Planner, Trust & Estate Practitioner and as a Fellow of the Chartered Institute for Securities & Investment.

John spent time working in a number of investment related roles in his earlier years with FPI and in the five years prior to joining Thornton Chartered Financial Planners he worked as a Tax & Estate Planning Consultant in the Technical Department. He was also a trustee of FPI’s staff pension scheme, which had over 400 members.

John joined Thornton Chartered Financial Planners in January 2016, and is really looking forward to using his qualifications and experience to help local people to lead the best lives they possibly can, safe in the knowledge that their financial affairs are being well looked after.

Married to Jill, a community occupational therapist, John is a father to two young girls, Catherine and Elizabeth, who account for most of his time when he’s not working.

Too old to play, he now enjoys watching football and cricket, keeping fit and aims to get the golf clubs out from the back of the shed as soon as he can.

John’s favourite place on the Isle of Man is Derbyhaven and Langness, where he particularly enjoys taking his daughters down to the beach and for a ride on their bikes and scooters.
