David Wells

Senior Partner


David believes that pension advice is a critical part of financial planning and as such needs to be carefully and thoroughly communicated to clients. He has built a significant global client base, and maintains regular contact not only through the initial advice stage but also on an ongoing basis with all of his clients.

Like Holborn Assets, David is keen to promote the values that matter: openness, honesty and transparency. He likes to work at his clients’ pace, ensuring that everything is clear and they have plenty of time to think before making any financial decision.

David is fortunate enough to have been in the Financial Services sector for over 25 years. Starting with Barclays in 1986 until 2009, David was an International Investment Manager in London before setting up Barclays Premier Banking in Dubai in 2004 and then moving over to Barclays Wealth MENA. He followed this with 2 years at Standard Chartered Private Bank.

In 2012, David moved to Mauritius to work for a private bank before being headhunted by Holborn Assets in the summer of 2013.


Whilst with Holborn, David has completed the CII Level 4 qualification within 6 months, and is now studying towards Chartered Financial Planner status. He is also one of only very few advisors to hold Level 6 pension qualifications with the main two universally accepted examining bodies.

  • Diploma in Financial Planning, FNS 50615 – Australian Financial Services
  • Diploma in Regulated Financial Services – RO1, RO2, RO3, RO4, RO5, RO6
  • CFE Level 3 Certificate in Investment Management – International Investment
  • AF7 (CII Pension Transfers) Advanced Diploma
