An Associate Partner Practice of St. James's Place Wealth Management

Gary Youngson Wealth Management Ltd

Gary Youngson

Prior to joining the financial services industry, I served my apprenticeship and worked for 12 years in the oil rig construction yards at home and abroad. As a consequence, I have now established many working relationships with individuals within this sector due, in part, to the insight and understanding that I have for their specific financial requirements.

Fundamentally I see my approach as one of problem-solving for the client - rather than product-selling. As a result, my clients can expect to receive the most comprehensive and appropriate advice at all times.


Based in Thurso, I provide wealth management advice to clients both within Caithness, and more widely throughout North of Scotland.

I have worked in the financial services industry for over 19 years providing advice throughout the Highlands and Islands.

I am committed to ensuring that my industry knowledge remains relevant and current by placing strong emphasis on my personal development. This, along with the pride and dedication that I place on developing solid personal relationships with my clients, ensures that I am able to offer a rounded, professional and principled service.

Outside of my business, I enjoy kayaking, canoeing and surfing.

With so many banks closing in rural areas it is great to find a Partner in a financial establishment with a very good track record, willing to give sound, practical investment advice. Since transferring to St. James's Place, Gary has been excellent at keeping me informed - and very patient with any queries I have had. I have already recommended him to friends!
N Swanson | Retired, Halkirk
Gary put us at ease from the start. His financial knowledge and enthusiasm for his trade shone through. Gary explained everything in detail. We are happy St. James's Place are doing the best for our money.
Lorna & Brian Cormack | Safety Case Coordinator/Supervisor, Thurso
Advice received from Gary was first class, as everything was explained thoroughly over 2 or 3 consultations. I wouldn't hesitate in recommending Gary to others.
J Bremner | Retired Fisherman, Thurso
Having recently retired we needed some professional help to plan for the future.
The help and advice that Gary gave us, explained in "laymans terms" has set us on a safe and secure course for the future and we also note his intentions to keep us up to date as the years roll on.
We have no hesitation, therefore in recommending Gary to anyone requiring financial planning advice.
Peter Knight | Retired Architect
Gary has been looking after my interests since 2004. I have watched my assets grow larger and larger due to his advice and excellent knowledge and experience. I would have no hesitation in recommending Gary to my family or friends.
Stan Campbell | Electrical Supervisor Offshore, Maryburgh
The value of an investment with St. James's Place will be directly linked to the performance of the funds you select and the value can therefore go down as well as up. You may get back less than you invested.

Past performance is not indicative of future performance.
Gary has been providing our family with sound advice over the last seven years. We have built up a really good relationship based on trust with a good understanding of his investment and pension advice. I would not hesitate and have every confidence in recommending Gary to anyone else.
Neil Drummond | Retired Senior Police Officer, Cononbridge
Past performance is not indicative of future performance.
I met Gary about 10 years ago when I required some information and guidance about savings and investments. He was always approachable and never pushy and presented his advice in an open and honest way which has enabled me to plan very well financially for my retirement which I now enjoy. I would not hesitate to recommend Gary as someone I can trust and can vouch for his professionalism, knowledge and experience.
