Ian is Director of Altus Wealth Management Ltd. He has a wealth of experience in delivering financial services to corporate clients and a small number of private clients.

His ability to understand business leaders’ key concerns and ability to recommend strategies to rapidly achieve meaningful results has led to significant success. His success is perhaps down to his “no nonsense” approach.

Ian joined his family business in 1989, driving it to be one of the largest and most forward-thinking advisory firms in the north of England, before its acquisition by Perspective Financial Group Ltd (Perspective) in 2008.

Ian was appointed to Perspective’s Operational Board in 2010 and the main board in 2013 where he serves as Chief Executive Officer, responsible for all aspects of the Group’s network of over 30 offices and over 450 staff across the UK. He is also Managing Director of Perspective (North East) Ltd and based in Newcastle upon Tyne.
