Garry Haywood

Managing Director

Clients say: "Garry Haywood is someone I can trust to advise on my financial affairs and his expertise provides real comfort."


Prior to setting up Globe IFA 25 years ago, I was in senior management with a major UK insurance company. My key focus is on delivering good outcomes for our clients and ensuring that Globe complies with the myriad of legislation issues.


A big passion of mine is skiing which is restricted to about five months of the year. Outside of this, I like to try and get to the gym three times per week. I also enjoy clay pigeon shooting.
