about us

The origins of Lawson Financial Management were formed in April 1988 in a partnership at the time of the inception of the Financial Services Act, which then became Lawson Financial Management in June 1990. The business has developed but our principles and culture remain the same – Passionate about Personal Wealth Management in order to achieve Financial Wellbeing by providing unbiased Advice and recommendations.

We are a family business, who is small enough to care but experienced to be able to provide you a professional, yet friendly, service.

DAVID M. LAWSON, BSC., ACII.,

PRINCIPLE PARTNER

I am the Principal Partner, Chartered Insurance Practitioner, and founder of Lawson Financial Management. I have been advising and providing financial planning services to help clients achieve their financial security since January 1987.

Before entering Financial Services I graduated in Civil Engineering and spent 10 years working in various locations around the world.

I enjoy playing golf twice a week (as long as it’s not raining!), and spend part of the year in Spain – working from home!

MATTHEW LAWSON

FINANCIAL CONSULTANT

As an experienced Financial Consultant, with a demonstrated history of working in the financial services industry, for over 10 years and with a DiPFA focused in Financial Advice from The London Institute of Banking & Finance, joining the family business felt like a natural path and it has been one I have enjoyed going down.

I strive to have the best work/life balance possible for me and my family. I am passionate about what we do for our clients and it is hard to switch off but when I am not finding another job for around the house or garden, it’s the simple things with my family I love best – a coastal walk with the dog or a BBQ with friends.
