Who We Are

“Our starting point is always to produce a lifetime cashflow forecast for our clients. This is fundamental as no investment decisions can be taken until we know that a person won’t run out of money in their lifetime and that the lifestyle they aspire to live is affordable.”

Financial Planning For Life

Glennan Wealth Management Limited is a boutique wealth management company based in West Yorkshire, and serving clients across the UK.

The company was founded in 2013 by Lee Glennan, an experienced & highly qualified Certified and Chartered Financial Planner, with over 30 years’ experience in delivering ‘face to face’ financial advice to clients.

Many of these have been as a director in a number of IFA firms, before finally fulfilling his vision of creating a deep, life planning-type client experience within his own family business.

Glennan Wealth Management is a Chartered Financial Planning Firm and an Accredited Financial Planning Firm.

There are only around 80 firms in the UK (out of many thousands) that have both designations – and GWM are one of only seven in the North of England.

In its short history GWM has been recognised for each of the last three years as a ‘Top 100′ firm in the UK by the respected financial publication New Model Advisor – part of the Citywire publishing house. Here is confirmation of their place in the 2018 list.

Lee Glennan – FPFS CFP™ Chartered FCSI

Founder & Managing Director

A proud Yorkshireman born and bred, Lee lives with his wife Ruth and three daughters in Mirfield, a few miles from where he grew up in Dewsbury.

When he’s not working, Lee makes the very most of the valuable time he has to spend with his still young family. He also enjoys the occasional round of golf and plays the guitar though unfortunately to a rather poor standard in both cases!

In keeping with his thoughtful, mindful approach to life planning with his clients, Lee has developed strategies to improve his outlook on life and his relationship with clients, including becoming a practitioner in ‘transcendental meditation’.

“When you live in a house with four ladies, having a way to relax and some peaceful downtime is important!” he says. “Keeping a calm approach allows me serve my clients better.”

What Is the CISI Accreditation?

CISI is the professional body for financial planners in the UK. Those looking for financial planners should look for Accredited Financial Planning Firm™ as the hallmark of quality, as it is the only globally recognised standard of professionalism in financial planning.

In order to achieve CISI accreditation, we have had to meet the following, strict criteria and must continue to do so in future to retain accreditation:

  • We must ensure clients always receive excellent service
  • We must demonstrate our commitment to the CISI’s Code of Conduct
  • We must continue to retain fully qualified staff, certified professionals trained to an advanced level.
What Does This Mean for You?

As a client of Glennan Wealth Management, this accreditation should reaffirm that we work to the highest professional standards, always ensuring that we act with your best interests at heart. We continue to dedicate ourselves to developing your financial plan with the aim of reaching your financial goals and allowing you live your desired lifestyle.

Can We Help You Live YOUR Best Life?

 
We would be delighted to meet with you to see how we may be able to help in achieving your financial and lifestyle aspirations. We will not engage with clients unless we are certain that we can add significant value. In this respect all initial meetings are always at our expense and no fees are ever charged until all parties are agreeable to working together.
