Hugh Austin

Senior Executive, Financial Advice

MSc, BSc, DipPFS

I graduated in 2017 with an MSc in Investment Fund Management from the University of Glasgow, following on from a bachelor’s in Accounting and Finance. After graduating, I gained experience in the financial services sector working for a couple of IFAs before joining Castlefield in 2019 with a Diploma in Regulated Financial Planning.

I was attracted to Castlefield by their emphasis on shared ownership and putting the values of the client first – and the work culture that this has created. My role in the Financial Advice team involves report writing and technical support; ensuring we find the right solutions for a client’s goals. I look forward to continuing my professional development at Castlefield, with the ambition of becoming a Chartered Financial Planner. 

Outside of work, I enjoy walks in the lovely, if not wet, North West countryside. I also enjoy baking and I am unfortunate enough to follow my hometown football club, Bolton Wanderers.
