Mark trained as an accountant before spending eight-and-a-half years in the IT industry. Deciding to move into financial services, Mark started as a self-employed independent adviser in 1988 and found himself owning 50% of the business in 1989. He became the majority shareholder by completing a management buyout in 2014 and assumed the role of CEO.
In 2015, Mark launched our fund management business, Bowmore Asset Management. His role now centres on driving the strategic direction of the Bowmore Wealth Group, while still finding time to advise his clients on a wide range of issues, predominantly how to reduce their Inheritance Tax liability.
Bowmore’s service is quantum-light years ahead of what I was receiving before.
