The Private Office appoints ex Pearson Jones Director

The Private Office has announced it will be further strengthening its wealth management team with the appointment of John Metcalf. 

John was previously Director of Wealth Management at Pearson Jones Independent Financial Advisers where he successfully advised individual clients, family wealth and Trust funds for 19 years.

John resigned from Pearson Jones in December, following the firm being bought by Standard Life as their first step in creating a national restricted advice business under the name of 1825.

John who has advised in the industry for over 25 years, brings an abundance of experience not only in advising clients but in helping shape a well-respected and client focused advice business.

Alistair Callander CEO of The Private Office commented "We are excited to welcome John to the firm with his considerable ability and experience and we are absolutely delighted he has chosen to join us, we look forward to what the future brings - this kind of individual does not become available on the market very often".

John Metcalf added "It was important to me that I could continue to provide truly independent financial advice as I have done for many years, without bias. I know that I will be joining a firm that has a fantastic pedigree, an ethos that puts the client first and is committed to offering high quality independent financial advice and I am very much looking forward to being a part of the team.”

John will be based in the TPO Leeds office.
