About Us

About Us

A&J Wealth Management Ltd was established in 1985 with Gareth Jones building it from scratch as a local company in Beaconsfield. Over the subsequent years, our financial advice firm has grown to 40 employees, 2 offices, over 1,400 clients on ongoing management and funds in excess of £450 million. 

We are focused on helping clients understand and plan for their future, providing the following services in order to achieve this;

    • Retirement & Pension Planning
    • Investment Portfolio Management
    • Life Assurance
    • Personal Tax Planning
    • Inheritance Tax Planning

In 2018 we were awarded Discretionary Fund Management permissions allowing us to manage our own model portfolios using our in-house investment committee. Clients can now choose between our advisory or DFM service for the active management of their investment portfolios.

In 2020, we expanded our services further into Investment Management with a new branch of A&J. This focusses on customers who are looking for bespoke investment portfolios tailored to their needs across a broader spectrum of investment opportunities.

The business has since grown considerably since and he hopes to further this over the coming years. We strive to meet all customer needs and desires by providing a holistic financial review and investment management proposition.
