MD & Fiduciary Financial Planner
Brian is the face of Jones Hill and our principal Independent Financial Planner. With over a decade of experience in financial planning, Brian is an expert in making sense of finances: a fact reflected in the awards he has received in recent years.
Before Jones Hill, Brian joined the Army and attended the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst (Sovereign’s Platoon, for those who are familiar). Unfortunately, Brian was war pensioned off after suffering knee injuries in the final term, just eight weeks away from commissioning.
Brian joined us in 2006, when we were based in Trowbridge, before our subsequent move to Bradford on Avon. Over the years he’s become well known for his integrity and down-to-earth approach, with his clients prepared to travel long distances to see him. Brian’s specialist areas are helping those who have served and their families, as well as divorcees and widows.

When he’s not spending time with his young family, Brian can be found at his local Crossfit gym or Southwick Parkrun, training for endurance events such as the gruelling 24km FanDance (twice across Pen-y-Fan peak, whilst carrying up 35lb-60lb of extra weight).
Brian’s knee injury, acquired in his military days, didn’t stop him from training and qualifying as an Alpine Ski Instructor. Brian takes time out each ski season to teach in Bavaria.
You might know this, but Brian used to be a Church organist. Nowadays, he would probably play all the right notes, but not necessarily in the right order.
