Johnston Campbell has been advising clients about their financial planning for over 40 years. We are wholly privately owned, and we look after in excess of £400m of assets for our clients. Our relationship with many of our clients goes back to our original formation. We are not affiliated to any one company ensuring you get truly independent advice.
I am a director at Johnston Campbell and have been in financial services for nearly 30 years. I joined Johnston Campbell in 2001 setting up the investment management part of our business. After graduating in business & finance from UUJ I worked within a large Uk financial services company for a number of years embarking upon a journey from general insurance underwriting to employee benefits and ending up in the investment management part of the company. Being part of one of the largest institutional investors in the UK this tenure helped shape my thinking about what’s most important to get right when investing for the longer term. Upon joining Johnston Campbell in 2001 I brought with me, an investment philosophy and methodology. Thankfully this has stood the test of time.
Currently, as a board member I play my part in influencing and shaping company direction along with our two other board members. I work with high net worth clients, particularly those who take an interest in investments. My aim is to develop a good productive long term working relationship with our clients and other stakeholders. A privileged position. I’m also active on our investment committee.
In my spare time, apart from constantly monitoring the ever changing investment world, I am a keen golfer. I enjoy the competition and the friendships. I’m also a tennis player aiming to be the best player in my family. This may take a while. I enjoy boxing to keep fit and greatly admire the dedicated boxer. I’m a petrolhead also being passionate about cars and all things automotive. I’m married with two teenage children and enjoy finding common ground with them. Our charitable trust allows me to get involved in projects and causes I hope can make a difference. Getting young local people, from disadvantaged backgrounds, into sport and other activities can hopefully lead to employment and self esteem. I enjoy supporting and helping, if I can.
I feel very fortunate indeed to work for Johnston Campbell with so many capable and dedicated colleagues.

I’ve worked at Johnston Campbell since 2001. That statement sounds like an awfully long time but doesn’t actually feel like it because I’ve been lucky to have had a role which is ever evolving and even more good fortune to work in a place with some great people. It’s a bit cliché but the people I work with have had a heavy influence on why I have been here so long. Either that or this is really the Hotel California!
In 2005, with Graham Glover, we established the investment team at Johnston Campbell and set out the philosophy and principles that underpins how we run money today. Developments in our industry have definitely kept me on my toes and I would have to say the favourite part of my job to this day remains interviewing and researching the best funds we think are suitable for our clients. I work closely with the advisers on clients that need bespoke investment planning and I still love that sense of debate and problem-solving in shaping an investment plan for their needs.
I wish I had something more interesting to say about my life outside of work but I just love to lie on the sofa, eat cake and relax my brain watching mindless reality television. Truthfully, I have 3 young kids so life is just….busy!
I am a Chartered Wealth Manager and Chartered Financial Planner and have been in the Financial Sector for over 15 years, 12 of which have been with this prestigious firm. I have had a number of roles within Johnston Campbell including working in the Investment Management Team, managing our Discretionary Investment proposition and more recently as part of the Advisory Team.
I work with various types of clients including business owners, wealthy individuals, partners in professional firms and trustees, helping them visualise and create robust financial strategies.
Outside of work most of my time is spent with my two young children, although still manage to enjoy getting to the Kingspan to watch Ulster Rugby.
Hi, I'm Mark. I’ve worked in a number of different areas of financial services for the last 23 years, of which the last 12 have been with Johnston Campbell.
As well as providing client support to the advisory team, my main role involves researching, designing and implementing client investment solutions, which means putting together our investment portfolios.
Outside of work I enjoy going to the gym, cycling and watching rugby, as well as spending time with my family.
Hi, I am Rebecca Nelson and I am a Client Adviser within Johnston Campbell. I joined the firm 9 years ago and during this time I have developed my skills and worked in a number of roles from working within the Investment Management Team to a senior support role and now I have moved into the Advisory Team. I am passionate about helping clients identify their financial objectives and bridging the gap with financial planning. Going forward I would like to continue with my professional studies and hope to be Chartered in the future.
Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends and my golden retriever, Barney. I enjoy photography, music and festivals and travelling.
Hello, my name is Raymond Mulligan and I am one of three Directors in Johnston Campbell Ltd.
After 16 years in various roles in Ulster Bank, I moved in 1996 to Equitable Life for 4 years, latterly running their Northern Ireland operation and then in 2000 joined what was then Johnston Campbell Partnership as a manager, moved on to Associate Partner and was then asked by the former Partners in 2005 to be the Managing Director for 5 years of the newly incorporated Johnston Campbell Ltd.
As well as sitting on the Board, I advise high net worth individuals and families and trustees of large trusts, usually in collaboration with their other professional tax and legal advisers, on the tax efficient growth, protection, enjoyment and eventual transfer of their wealth.
My mantra is “to remove ambiguity and anxiety and to provide clarity and reassurance with simplicity, transparency and integrity” and in all ways, with the support of my colleagues, to serve our clients in the very best way we can.
Being constantly mindful of how blessed I personally have been, I always seek to help others whenever and in whatever way I can, two of those opportunities currently being to serve as a volunteer with two charities, Fields of Life – www.fieldsoflife.org - a charity which focuses on “helping others to help themselves” in East Africa, and RUTH (Raising Up The Hurting) – www.raisingupthehurting.org - a charity which gets alongside the homeless and those with addiction problems both on the streets and in hostels.
I am married, have two adult children, am passionate about anything with engines be it motor bikes, karts, cars, boats and all forms of motorsport as well as watching rugby and enjoy the country life around me at home, in all its forms!
I am a Director with Johnston Campbell and have been in the Financial Sector for over 25 years, half of which have been with this great organisation. I initially graduated with a degree in accountancy and have had a wide and varied career, latterly working in banking prior to my return to Northern Ireland.
As well as working with our key clients, helping them put in place robust financial strategies, I am responsible for the Regulatory Functions within the business, as well as overseeing our finances and future strategic direction. More recently, I have been investing in our next phase of leadership, to ensure we live out our vision, mission and values.
Outside of work I have two grown up children, so now my wife and I have one of the most precious commodities available – time. We are thankful to have health as well as time, and therefore spend it wisely. I am a season ticket holder with Ulster Rugby and enjoy getting along to Kingspan. Sailing is another passion, we are blessed to live near Strangford Lough, so any excuse will find me out on the water attempting to win races. I am actively involved in a number of Charities and seek to use what I have been given to help others in any ways I can.
I have been fortunate in life to find work an enjoyment not a chore, a challenge and not a stress, and have always worked alongside great people who develop and stretch me. Johnston Campbell is truly a unique place to work, it continues to be a privilege to work with such great people who are passionate about what they do and seek to make a difference to the lives we come in contact with.
I joined Johnston Campbell on 1st April 2008, just as the financial world was getting ‘interesting’, shall we say!
As a chartered financial planner, I enjoy helping my clients work towards their life-long financial goals and ambitions. My areas of expertise are investment management, pensions, tax planning, and business and family protection. My clients are typically business owners, wealthy individuals, partners in professional firms and trustees. Although based in Belfast, I have clients across the United Kingdom, and travel regularly to meet with them. I also work closely with my clients' solicitors and accountants to try to address the bigger picture, and provide joined up advice.
As well as being a wealth manager, I enjoy having input into the Investment Committee, the Executive Committee, the Business Development and Marketing committee, and also the Social Responsibility Committee – my work is very varied but that’s what makes life interesting!
Outside of work, I ‘used to’ play golf before discovering the world of triathlon - I enjoy training with my local club, Lisburn Triathlon Club, and have a few events lined up for 2018. That, along with studying for a Masters’ degree, should keep me pretty busy this year!

Hi I'm Karen.
I am a Senior Paraplanner and have worked closely alongside the Financial Advisers and Directors for 18 years providing support and assistance with implementing new business and providing support and service to our existing clients.
I deal with the full range of Investment, pension and protection solutions, with a particular focus on serving high net worth and business owner clients, and for a range of ages from clients starting out on their financial planning accumulation journey to those accessing or decumulating their accrued funds at and during retirement.
I also provide input to researching, formulating and implementing legitimate tax mitigation solutions for clients who wish to do so and collaborate closely with colleagues to provide a seamless high-quality service across all our clients’ needs.
I have worked in Financial Services for 30 years, with over 20 of those as an advisor with Nationwide Building Society.
I have now been working in a support role with Johnston Campbell for almost 7 years.
I enjoy supporting our advisors to meet our clients’ needs and providing an excellent service to both.
I also enjoy being a member of our Corporate Social Responsibility Committee.
Outside of work I volunteer every week at parkrun and I am a keen runner.
Hi I’m Johnny, and I joined Johnston Campbell in 2004 after working for many years at Standard Life.
Initially, my role was as a financial planner but in recent years I have also migrated to a more supervisory role, responsible for our team of financial planners and reporting to the board about the overall production of new business and I'm involved in the future direction of Johnston Campbell.
I believe that my 26 years’ experience has been vital in helping my clients plan for tomorrow but also to live for today. I endeavour to always use a huge degree of empathy, this allows me to always look at situations at a very human level and with a genuine care for how my client's plans affect them and their wider family circle.
I’m a family man with two sons and outside work I am constantly busy with my involvement with Lisburn Scouts, Lisburn Rotary and raising awareness of Autism in Northern Ireland. I also have a love for the mountains and can often be found with my dog Robbie in the Mournes.
I am a Chartered Financial Planner & Chartered Wealth Manager within Johnston Campbell, I partner with local and national entrepreneurs/business professionals and successful retirees to help them clarify and visualise their goals. I use a unique ‘planning only’ process to establish where my clients are on their journey and any actions, if required, to allow them to meet their goals.
I am passionate about planning, and have spent over a decade in Johnston Campbell providing this added value service to my own clients and clients throughout the business. Having originally intended to pursue accountancy I felt compelled to look into financial services after my father had a bad experience from an advisor. 16 years later, with almost 13 of those with Johnston Campbell, I am delighted with my decision.
Originally from Lisburn, I now live in mid Antrim with my wife Aileen, passionate about sport in particular Liverpool FC and continuing my professional studies.

Hello, my name is Peter Bingham and I am a Financial Planner. After 12 years in various roles in the banking sector, I joined Johnston Campbell Ltd in 2008.
Essentially, I see the role as helping clients achieve their goals through a financial planning journey which involves first and foremost, listening to client’s goals and aspirations then tailoring any solutions to meet these objectives. Thereafter, the most important thing is to continually review these objectives to ensure the client remains on track to achieve them.
I will endeavour to provide the solutions in a user friendly format by cutting through the jargon that is inevitably associated with the financial services industry, which helps to build relationships with clients that will continue for years to come.
Working as part of a great team allows me the opportunity to work closely with professionals, in particular accountants and solicitors in advising high net worth individuals, families and trustees on the tax efficient growth, protection, enjoyment and eventual transfer of their hard earned wealth.
I enjoy focusing on my clients “big picture”, developing a plan to assist in achieving their financial goals. Whether working with business owners, professionals, or other high net worth individuals my clients have one thing in common: the desire to pursue their goals and dreams and to have an experienced professional help them to make smart financial decisions.
When not working I spend most of my spare time with my family and most weekends acts as “dad’s taxi service” to two teenage children who share my passion for sports, and that means plenty of driving and spectating at the weekends.
I enjoy most sports, particularly football and although I’ve now hung up the boots, I’m still an avid armchair Liverpool fan. I’m also a keen cyclist, play a bit of golf when the sun is out and like to travel.
Hi, I am a financial planner with Johnston Campbell. I have been providing my clients with sensible financial advice for nearly 20 years with the last 13 here at Johnston Campbell. To me, Financial planning means acting with the utmost integrity and confidentiality to enable you to reach your goals and protecting you against the threats that might prevent their achievement.
I look after generations of clients. Passing wealth and family assets from one generation to the next. Informing and helping mitigate their tax position, working alongside their chosen legal and accounting specialists.
As well as helping my private clients achieve their goals, I am increasingly working alongside business clients, both large corporate structures and smaller practices. I also have 18 years prior to that in corporate retail, teaching me organisational and management skills. I recognise the merit of hard work.
In recent years I have become increasingly involved in the development of our web and marketing structures.
I am a family man, children’s taxi driver, keen photographer. I don’t play as much golf as I would like and I love motorsport. I have little spare time, but I am always looking to learn something to add to my life experience.
I consider myself to be in a fortunate position and have enjoyed getting more involved with our social responsibility strategy and helping put something back to those less fortunate than me.

Hello there, after working in Johnston Campbell in a client support role for nearly 14 years I have now taken on a new challenge of working in a management support role.
I believe it is very important that our clients can feel comfortable contacting any member of our team and will always have a point of contact even if their financial advisor is out of the office. I have enjoyed getting to know clients over the years and helping them with any queries they have as well as providing support to the advisor team to ensure our clients are getting the service they deserve.
I will miss the client contact part of the client support role but I am looking forward to using my experience and knowledge to assist our advisor and support teams to meet our client expectations and more. I am in the privileged position to be able to work part time allowing me to do my other very important job-mum to 3 young girls. With this important job free time does not exist but I do love spending time with my family creating memories for them and enjoying ourselves while we do it.
Having worked in Financial Services for 25 years, starting in the banking sector, then moving onto Mortgage Advising, I have now been working as a Client Support Consultant with Johnston Campbell for almost 6 years, supporting the advisers in all of their administrative needs. I am a member of our social responsibility committee and have enjoyed getting involved recently with the Welcome Organisation and last year running with Fields of Life.
Outside of work I am kept busy with my two daughters and my dog. I run with a local running club and have completed numerous 10k races as well as the Belfast Half marathon in 2017.https://www.johnstoncampbell.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/05/Aine-McLarnonemail@example.com

Hi, I’m a Chartered Financial Planner and I’ve been with Johnston Campbell now, since 2003. Within the Practice I specialise in all areas of pensions; from divorce-related work to pension transfers, to assessing the impact of legislative changes on existing retirement plans. I have over 25 years’ experience in pensions and how they relate to the real world that our clients live in. As with all things in life, I approach my work with diligence and unashamed enthusiasm, as I seek to help our clients navigate the complexities of pensions and retirement planning.
Outside work, I'm a family man with two children and I follow rugby with an even greater passion than pensions.

Hi I'm Michael, I’m the firm’s go-to person for all things self-invested pension (SIPP or SSAS) related. Typically this means much of my time is spent dealing with SSAS admin duties and or dealing with property specific matters.

Hi, I’m Harry and I have only been working with Johnston Campbell since the beginning of 2018. Before this, I studied Computer Science at Queen’s University Belfast and worked for Danske Bank for nearly 2 years also although I am hoping I will be here a bit longer.
When I am not working I like to play, watch, coach or referee football and currently I coach several girls and ladies teams for Banbridge Town. Also, I love to travel and get away when possible and I think my favourite place I have ever been to would be Paris or Toronto. I still have plenty more to see too though.
My name is Conor and I am a Client Services Consultant within Johnston Campbell, I started working here at the beginning of 2018 so am still relatively new. Before working for Johnston Campbell I was previously working as a trainee accountant and prior to that, I worked for the HMRC and an insurance company.
My role with Johnston Campbell includes providing support to our advisory team. I have begun studying and working towards getting my professional exams and plan to develop this further in the future.
When I’m not working I spend most of my time playing football and at weekends I enjoy “socialising” with my friends.
Hi, I'm Donna and I am a Client Support Consultant. I have just joined Johnston Campbell after spending over five years at Danske Bank where I worked with the private banking team. Everyone has made me feel very welcome.
I have an honours degree in business studies, I love to travel, socialise and my time is taken up looking after my young daughter.
I was delighted to join Johnston Campbell in February 2020. A Team I have worked with and greatly admired for a number of years.
I started advising Clients in London in 1994. I have maintained Client relationships from my time in London and continue to advise those Clients 26 years later.
I have developed extensive knowledge of both advising and also coaching/training Private Bankers and Wealth Managers all over the World. I have worked extensively in London, Switzerland, the United Arab Emirates, Singapore and Hong Kong.
This has been hugely insightful for me and given me the opportunity to see how some of the most high profile Wealth Managers go about Client Relationship Management. I therefore believe that Johnston Campbell’s approach to looking after their Clients compares with the best in the world. The combination of true Client centricity and an unbiased approach to portfolio selection and management really is the only differentiator.
Prior to starting to advise I worked in the mining industry in Angola, West Africa for 2 years, as an expedition Sirdar in Nepal and served as a Gurkha Officer for 7 years.
I have an interest in organisational culture both in business and in sport. I was asked to work with the Northern Ireland Football Team in 2014/15 and Leinster Rugby in 2017/18.
