Ray Clerkin MCSI, Financial Planner

Ray has been working in the financial services industry as a Financial Adviser since 1990.

In line with his professional background, he has focused on developing specialist knowledge and is now fully qualified as a trusts* and estate planning Partner. However, as a representative of St. James’s Place Wealth Management, his service is enhanced and complemented by the provision of advice covering the areas of investment planning, Inheritance Tax planning and retirement strategies.

Fundamentally he sees his approach as one of problem-solving for the client - rather than product-selling. As a result, his clients can expect to receive the most comprehensive and appropriate advice at all times.

Ray is married with two adult children who are now living independent lives. In his spare time Ray enjoys cycling, walking and playing golf.
