You can rely on us for the right advice


Alan Reid

I have worked in financial services for more than 20 years and much has changed, however, I still truly believe that our clients should always be at the centre of what we do and that is what we strive to do at Waverton.

My areas of expertise concentrate on our private client wealth management, predominately adding value to business owners and clients whose financial needs are often of a more complicated nature which include advising on trusts, investments, personal tax planning and complex retirement planning options.

Alongside my advisory role I am responsible for the operational management and growth of Waverton Wealth and I can honestly put our success down to the focused ethos of the business and working with a great team of highly skilled colleagues.

Our clients really trust in the advice they receive, safe in the knowledge that their financial decisions are in safe hands.

I joined Waverton in September 2021 as part of the purchase of Cornerstone Asset Management where I was a founding Partner.

I am married with four children and spend my spare time playing golf (badly) and supporting my local football team – Motherwell.

Alan J Reid

I joined Cornerstone Asset Management in January 2016 bringing more than 30 years of experience within the financial services industry. My approach to wealth management is based on the experience gained from managing client’s portfolios for 3 decades, plus delivering an individual service, tailored to each client’s needs. My career to date has been based on my core values of honesty, sincerity, trust and reliability which has led to the majority of my clients being referred.

My main focus and concentration now, is to work with clients advising and assisting in the preservation and protection of their assets. I am proud to have joined Cornerstone as I see this as an exciting opportunity to be part of a team of sincere, like-minded professionals who have the passion, energy and expertise to develop a market leading wealth management business.

Jason Hemmings

I have over 20 years experience in a number of senior positions within financial services.  I co-founded Cornerstone Asset Management, now Waverton Wealth, as I firmly believe in the need for appropriate financial planning rather than selling products.

This belief is more important than ever and it’s what sets us apart; we deliver a full financial planning and wealth management service and have shaped an approach that puts the client at the heart of what we do.   This ensures the client is always fully engaged from the very start of their relationship with Waverton.

Alongside my advisory role I hold overall responsibility for the firm’s compliance, ensuring that we fulfil our regulatory responsibilities as well as making sure clients receive the best possible outcomes from the advice and service we provide.

What attracted me to Waverton Wealth is the company’s commitment to both their clients, and employees. The opportunities are endless for both parties, which is why working for Waverton Wealth is as enjoyable. No two days are the same. I look to utilise the opportunities available to myself and go through my professional finance exams and look forward to what the future holds for myself here.
