Iain founded Wishart Wealth Management in 2006. Since the sale of the business Iain has taken a step back from providing advice to clients and his role has changed to one focused on business strategy and consultancy within the wider McHardy Group.

Outside of work, interests include his family, travel (often called a ‘Greekaholic’!), attending the pool/gym (a necessity), following the Scotland international rugby team (can be traumatic), driving a classic car (also called a ‘money pit’), compiling chill out music, being a yoga student, the occasional glass of red wine and experiencing the great outdoors.
