John Ditchfield

Partner, Financial Advice

BA(Hons), DipPFS

As part of my role at Castlefield, I advise a number of large charities and well-known campaign groups and am frequently quoted in print and have been known to appear on radio and television. I am the Co-Chair of the Ethical Investment Association (EIA), was a board member of UKSIF (the UK Sustainable Investment and Finance Association) from 2012 to 2015 and was voted the Unbiased Media Group Responsible IFA of the Year 2015. I am also a member of the Admissions Panel of the Social Stock Exchange

I graduated from Liverpool University in 1995, having read Philosophy and Politics. For the next three years I then worked for Oxfam campaigns in the development and promotion of the Basic Rights Campaign. After leaving Oxfam in 1998 I spent the next six years as a Project Manager for the Single Regeneration Budget and European Social Fund, developing community based micro-credit schemes in Leeds, Birmingham and London. I then joined Castlefield in 2003, to support the growing number of clients seeking specialist financial planning advice on ethical and environmental investments in the London area.

My hobbies include triathlon and distance running. My personal best for London’s Olympic Triathlon is 2 hours 29 minutes.
