Our Story

Causeway Financial Management can trace it’s roots to the 1980’s.

Causeway Financial Management Ltd. was formed in 2019 by Mark Akiens and Laura Ainslie. Having worked together for a number of years at their previous company and having extensive experience in the financial service industry, we decided to establish Causeway Financial Management to provide a full financial planning and wealth management service to individuals and businesses.

We understand that seeking financial advice can seem daunting, especially if you’ve never sought advice before. We take as much time as you need to ensure you are happy and fully understand every stage of the advice process. We offer confidential meetings either at our office in Elmstead Market, at your home or place of work, or by video call whichever is your preference. We don’t charge for the initial meeting and it is without obligation.
