About Us

Established in 1971, Lowes Financial Management has a distinguished history of giving independent financial advice to a wide range of people throughout the United Kingdom.

The keystone upon which Lowes and its clients have prospered is our personal approach to financial planning, enabling us to help clients with their goals to build and ultimately protect their wealth. One of our proudest achievements has been receiving the accreditation of “Chartered Financial Planners”, which is considered to be the gold standard of excellence and integrity.

We strive to maintain the highest standards in both the quality of advice that we give and our relationship with our clients; the results of our latest client survey can be read here. It is a testament to our service and investment advice that over 97% of clients who recommend Lowes to a friend, relative or colleague.

Our work has been recognised not only by our clients but also in some of the most prominent finance awards. We are award winning Chartered Financial Planners and have been judged by respected Money Marketing magazine to be amongst the top Investment Advisers in the UK in 3 out of 4 years (2018, 2020, 2021) and were named Investment Adviser of the Year by Investment Life & Pensions Moneyfacts Awards in 2023.

It is a testament to our services that many of our clients have been with us since inception. Each client not only has the benefit of a dedicated personal adviser but also the backup of our highly qualified Technical Department who help the adviser ensure that the advice is current and suitable to their ongoing needs. Lowes advises clients on a wide range of financial aspects, such as investments, inheritance tax planning, pensions and long-term care. A combined wealth of experience and industry knowledge ensures our clients receive financial advice that is tailored to their personal needs and expectations.

Our History in this Market

Structured Products began appearing in the UK retail investment market in the early 1990s and whilst the number of contracts available was initially very small by the end of the decade they were being released at the rate of around one a week.

As the supply of contracts increased, we began to identify an alarming number that we felt were potentially misleading and providing arguably insufficient reward in return for the risk to which the capital was being exposed. As a result, we published a leaflet entitled "The Truth Behind Those High Yield Stockmarket Bonds". The first article warned of the dangers of what later became known as "precipice bonds" was published in October 2000 and was as a direct result of the Lowes leaflet.

Our review service grew from there with us having reviewed every structured product issued into the UK retail market since the year 2000, publishing the details and monitoring all through to maturity. Our service has helped many financial advisers and investors to avoid many of the worst contracts whilst our clients benefited from many of the better value investments.

Lowes contributes frequently to the media and we are often the first point of contact for the press looking for unbiased and objective comment on matters relating to structured products.

Lowes now collaborates to develop and create new structured products. As an example, to view the latest Mariana 10:10 plan please click here.

Our sister company Lowes Investment Management Ltd also manages the Lowes UK Defined Strategy Fund which is a fund comprising a series of defined investment strategies. The Fund capitalises upon skills and structured investment selection success enjoyed by Lowes clients, built up over several decades. To find out more, please click here.
