Clive Howes

Wealth Management Consultant


In life I believe we are all on a journey. People are what make our journey special and meeting all sorts of different people is what I enjoy most about life and my job. This is my story so far.

About me

In 1985 I left South Africa my country of birth and headed for England. My plan was to study here for one year then return home. After more than thirty years later I am still here in England where I am happily married to a Yorkshire lass and the proud father of two adult sons. Four years into my stay in England I joined Barclays working in their Financial Services Division. They provided me with a good background to the industry and ensured I was fully trained up to industry standards. After I had worked for them for 20 years Barclays withdrew from providing financial advice to their customers so my time with them ended. I always believe that when one door closes another opens so in August 2011 I joined Stuart Gray Associates which has now become Optasia Wealth Management. As a Practice Financial Adviser I have thrived with this company ever since joining. Here I enjoy providing clients with a professional service.

Personal Interests

High on my list of priorities is my family and we enjoy spending time together whenever possible including visiting friends and relatives still in South Africa. As part of our local church we enjoy doing things together with other church members. Coming from South Africa I have a love for sport and follow football, rugby and cricket in particular. I also enjoy walking, reading and visiting places of interest.
