Richard Eastwood

Partner

As the Partner heading up the Financial Services and Wealth Management team, Richard has over 20 years' experience in the financial world and over a decade with the firm. He has recently been nominated for Oldham's Business Man of the Year at the Oldham Business Awards.

His early years were spent with the Royal London Assurance Company as a Financial Adviser and prior to that he worked in business.This has given him a unique insight into the requirements of a wide range of companies and an ability to work with a cross section of people.

Married with three sons, in his spare time he is a taxi service to his sporting children, enjoys running and has competed in the New York Marathon, completed a solo parachute jump from 4000ft and enjoyed quad biking across the Turkish outback.

In 2010 he was dealt a blow when he discovered he had cancer, but says it helped him reflect on life and what is important.

"I had policies in place to look after the financial side of things, it made me realise how important it is to plan ahead to protect ourselves and our loved ones."
