Our Wealth Planners

Ian Cosnett

Wealth Planning Director




I joined the financial services industry at the age of 18 following a brief career as an assistant golf professional and enjoyed 2 years working as an adviser for Allied Dunbar.

In 1984 I joined Colonial Mutual and specialised in affinity group development, where I gained management status within 5 years. At the age of 27 I was appointed to manage the Southampton Super Branch – the youngest ever appointment of its kind.

I was head hunted by Allied Dunbar in 1996 and subsequently returned to the West Midlands where I eventually became Senior Group Manager for the Birmingham area and received national awards and accolades relating to my performance.

In 2003 I joined English Mutual which subsequently became part of Sanlam in 2012.

I live in Wolverhampton with my wife Debbie and have three children.




Over the many years I have been using the services and expertise of Ian Cosnett and English Mutual and I can happily say that I have enjoyed sound advice and extremely prompt attention to my personal and business needs. I have prospered personally and in business as a result of the products I have used and would be delighted to recommend Ian and English Mutual to others.

I was introduced to Ian Cosnett by a close friend approximately 8 years ago when I was in need of a mortgage for a residential property. Ian managed the transaction in a quick and extremely efficient manner. I subsequently sold my business in 2008. Ian, together with English Mutual, guided me through the myriad of investments that were available to me and put together a portfolio that suited my needs, he continues to 'tweak' my investments to ensure I obtain the best available even in these very challenging times. Ian's information and advice is always current, he keeps up with all the changing legislation and advises accordingly in a succinct and professional manner. On a personal note, Ian is extremely personable, easy going and has a sense of humour which is invaluable these days. I will continue to use his services and would have no hesitation in recommending him.
