“Following on from my own relocation from Inverness to Aberdeen, Scott has stepped up to the plate and leads all of JC Wealth’s activity in Inverness. He has developed a superb reputation for the standard of support and advice he delivers for our clients.

“His expertise in working with high-value clients who have evolving requirements is a significant benefit for our team and our clients. Issues such as complex planning requirements are as important as ever to the continued growth of JC Wealth, and Scott will continue to drive that part of the business forward.”
