Craig Davidson

Managing Director

Craig is the Managing Director and founder of Davidsons IFA. Having spent his career in financial services, he settled in Devon with his family and established the business in February 2001.

Building long-term relationships

Craig began his career in financial services immediately on leaving university. He worked in both London and Hong Kong before moving to the South West with his family and starting Davidsons IFA in 2001.

Over the years, Craig has enjoyed helping clients with all sorts of issues, from arranging mortgages for buying their first home to managing retirement portfolios.

“When I started the business, the primary objective was to be an independent adviser. Over the years, I have come to realise that this means being honest and open about our advice. If we avoid the sales culture and focus on what our clients actually want or need, then we will build long-term relationships.”

Craig’s children have recently flown the nest, so he and his wife are currently renovating a new house. When time permits, he also enjoys short holidays and the occasional salsa lesson.

The money we invest is not ours – it’s our clients’ money, and we should never forget that.
