Simon Lewis

Chief Executive Officer

I was appointed Managing Director of PMW in October 1996, at the tender age of 29. Running a business can be challenging and I feel I have learnt a lot since the days when my enthusiasm exceeded my experience. There is no doubt in my mind that the key to success is having a great team of people delivering an honest and sound proposition; I believe this helps to explain why most of our current clients have been with us for over 20 years. Taking the long term view is important in lots of respects and I am proud that despite the significant turbulence in financial markets that has been experienced along the way, I have steered the company to profit over the last 17 consecutive years. As well as running the business I still act as Chartered Financial Planner for many of PMW's Wealth Management clients. When I am not working, I enjoy spending time with my family and when time permits, indulge my passion for rugby and sailing.

Warren To

Financial Planner

My career at PMW started in 2010 when I spent a few months interning soon after my graduation. Following completion of my internship, I was offered a permanent position to train as a Financial Planner. Initially my role involved special projects, investment research and of course intensive training on the Company’s processes and procedures, which involved ‘shadowing’ both Account Managers and Advisers. Following completion of my exams, I became a Financial Planner for clients of PMW’s Wealth Management Service. The most rewarding part of my role is working with clients to structure portfolios that deliver on their objectives. Away from the office, I enjoy playing badminton and socialising.
