About Ian Lowes

Ian Lowes joined Lowes in 1988 and has been the Managing Director since 2002 after taking over from his father, Ken Lowes, who established the firm in 1971. Ian is a Chartered Financial Planner and is a Fellow of the Personal Finance Society, the highest accolade granted by the CII.

Previously recognised by Professional Adviser as one of the most influential voices in the country, Ian has secured a reputation as a leading authority in financial planning and in particular the structured product sector. As an established figure within the finance sector, Ian has, on a number of occasions, been shortlisted as IFA Personality of the Year and his opinion is regularly sought by journalists.

“Lowes has been built on an ethos that has not wavered since it was established – doing right by people.”

Ian looks after a select number of clients, with the majority of his time spent on maintaining and building the business. He also makes use of his knowledge and experience by regularly assisting both clients and the media with many of the more technical issues of financial planning.
