What our clients say
We have found the advice and service provided by Iain to be professional, reliable and valuable. We would recommend Wishart Wealth to our friends looking for a financial adviser/planner with a longer term view.
Lindsay and Nicky Grant, Edinburgh
What I like about Wishart Wealth Management is that they start from where you want to end up - and work back. Which somehow, makes much more sense of what you're doing, for how long and why. It's a steep, steep learning curve for me personally, but Iain's straight-talking manner - and patience - helps make the process of getting my finances in order a whole lot less painful.
Lesley Dougall, business owner, Glasgow
My husband and I found the Financial Planning exercise (using Truth financial planning software) with Iain very interesting. We found that we needed to put a few extra plans in place to plan for our future. I have also very much appreciated Iain's persistence and focus in resolving mis-selling issues (from previous adviser) relating to my Self Invested Perpsnal Pension (SIPP) which involved the financial ombudsman. He brought this to a very successful conclusion for me, his knowledge of the industry and the regulators was a key factor.
Kerri Middleton, MD, Busy B and K TWO Products (Design), Edinburgh
Wishart Wealth sets the standard for financial planning and independent financial advice. Their quality of service and attention to detail are second to none. Iain is knowledgable, professional and client-focussed. He respects your opinion and he and his team provide a service based upon personal attention. Excellent communication skills.
Prof. Stewart Brymer, WS, OBE, Solicitor, Btoughty Ferry, Dundee
We first approached Wishart Wealth Management for independent financial advice on a diverse range of issues including detailed technical pension advice. More importantly, we needed to know where we were heading financially and ultimately the answer to perhaps the biggest question of all – ‘how much is enough?’ As a result of their excellent and comprehensive financial planning service (including detailed cash flow models), we now have greater peace of mind, clarity and confidence in our futures.
Nino Allenza,CA, ex-CEO –Silentnight Group Ltd (inc G-Plan Furniture), Edinburgh
After I was widowed father suddenly, I was introduced by my solicitor to Wishart Wealth Management. Iain came to my (metaphoric) rescue and simplified my finances. So far, so good! As the financial, planning and investment world was a complete mystery to me, I am happy to leave all this to Wishart Wealth to sort out.

Our services

Three things:
1. Positively life changing proper financial planning – with you, we work out what you need to do (exactly) to get where you want to go. Done well, this is life changing stuff.
2. A long term historical perspective (versus whatever the ‘apocalypse du jour’ is). History versus today’s headlines. There can be no rational long term financial plan without our long term historical perspective (or you might sell out during a temporary downturn).
3. Ongoing behavioural investment coaching – temporary volatility - investment values always go down as well as up. We help keep you on track.
