Ian Leigh (IP)
Vice President – International Pensions
Ian is a Vice President of Holborn’s International Pensions Division. He joined Holborn Assets in 2015, having worked in the banking and financial services sectors for over 27 years. He began his career in 1988 when he joined Lloyds Bank Plc and spent the next 9 years working in personal and business banking, before gaining the Financial Planning Certificate in 1997.
As a qualified, authorised and regulated UK financial planner, he then worked for Britannic Assurance, Wesleyan Financial Services and Sun life Financial of Canada, before deciding to set up his own business as an Independent Financial Adviser, in April 2001. Running his own company allowed Ian to focus on providing independent, holistic financial planning advice to HNW private clients.
Wanting to further his career, specifically in the offshore market, in 2012, Ian then took a position in Europe as a Regional Manager for Blacktower Financial Management International, where he gained specialist knowledge in international pensions and pension transfers (QROPS).
Ian now works on a global basis for Holborn Assets and he focuses purely on advising private clients on how best to structure their UK pension provision, having accrued pension benefits in the UK and then decided to live oversees.
