Independent Financial Advisor
Robert is proud to offer expert and completely independent financial advice to all his clients.
Robert is originally from Airdrie and attended Bell College in Hamilton. After working in the hospitality industry he started his career in financial services in 1996 initially with Pearl Assurance. After 12 years in a variety of tied advisor posts Robert took up his first post as a fully independent financial advisor when he joined Lows in 2008.
Robert has undertaken extensive training whilst at Lows and now holds a Level 4 IFA qualification from the Institute for Financial Services. This allows Robert to provide whole of market advice to Lows’ clients.
Robert advises clients at all ages and stages of life and he gives unbiased advice on all types of mortgage, investment and protection products available. Robert works closely with our private client Solicitors and our Tax Manager, Ian Stout, to ensure that clients’ investment objectives are fully met.
Robert is not tied to offering the products of a single company or a restricted stable of companies and he can also advise clients on the full range of products available via National Savings. Robert is in the forefront of financial advisors who are moving away from traditional commission based remuneration to fee based advice.
Robert coaches Thorfinn Football Club in Kirkwall and is also a keen amateur chef.
