Stuart Hutton Chartered MCSI, DipPFS
Investment Advice

Stuart originally qualified from Reading University with a degree in Quantity Surveying in 1991. Having had a life-long interest in the stock market and investing, he was offered the chance to join Edward Jones at the beginning of 2007 to train to become a Stockbroker and Financial Planner. This opportunity included building his own business from scratch, which he did over the three years with the company.

Stuart enjoyed the offer from Edward Jones, as it allowed him the freedom to be entrepreneurial and use his broad business skills. The office was like running your own business and Stuart maintains that his quick success came about from developing strong trusting relationships with his clients and always doing what was right for them. Due to the enthusiasm and energy with which Stuart worked, he also quickly became involved with working with new advisers to the firm throughout the South West and Wales, at one point overseeing 46 advisers.

"Invest Together"

Late 2009 saw Edward Jones leave the UK and the entire business being sold. Stuart decided at this point to set up his own branch with Raymond James Investment Services.
