Julian Oates – Principal

As the Principal of Oates Financial Planning, I come with nearly 30 years experience in advising clients. I started my career in a bank as part of the team, before moving to an independent advisory firm, and then forming Oates Financial Planning in 2006.

I invest time every year in updating myself on the latest changes within the financial sector, so you can be assured of the most up to date advice on your investments.



Here to help

Our aim is to help individuals and businesses to achieve their financial goals. Our approach is straightforward. You tell us about your current situation and about your financial objectives and when you want to achieve them.

We develop a practical plan designed to help you meet those objectives. We’ll discuss the plan with you and agree the course of action you want to take. Whilst the final decisions are of course yours, we’re here to help and guide you with jargon-free advice both now and in the future.
