Our first names


The first name in in perspective

Ryan is a Client Services Director for our Private Client department in the Isle of Man, where he manages a portfolio of predominantly real estate clients. Naturally inquiring, he relishes the opportunity to tailor solutions to individual client requirements – always with a level head and a sense of perspective.

Work the problem.

A qualified chartered accountant (ACA), Ryan spent over a decade in London working for a number of blue chip companies as an auditor, a financial planning analyst, a product controller of a derivative trading desk and Finance Director / Head of Operations for a European real estate fund. On moving back to the Isle of Man, he became a director with the fiduciary arm of a leading law and professional services group on the island. Ryan has a First-Class Honours Degree in Theoretical Physics from the University of St Andrews, Scotland.

Ryan considers himself lucky to have had the opportunity to learn from a diverse range of colleagues throughout his professional journey. When it comes to his fellow First Names, he respects Andrew Davies who understands what clients need even when it’s not always what they’ve asked for, and considers Oliver Webster a very safe pair of hands who gets the job done.


On weekends off, Ryan enjoys open water swimming (whatever the weather!), walking or relaxing in front of a fire in winter with his family. In the future, he’d love to visit Antarctica or dive with manta rays. His proudest moment – apart from his family – was getting a first at university.
