Scott Newman has joined independent financial advice firm Continuum as a Chartered Financial Planner.

He will be based in Nairn within the Scottish Highlands and will support clients from across the region.

Mr Newman has over 20 years of experience in financial advice and has been a Chartered Financial Planner since 2007. 


He spent almost 17 years of his career with Johnson Carmichael Wealth in Inverness with other former advice roles including time at Norwich Union (now Aviva) and Gilliland Neilson Brown.

He chose to join the Continuum partnership as he was looking for support and backup for his new business to the benefit of his clients, whilst still being able to offer whole of market solutions, without compromises or any considerations other than his clients best interests.

He said: “Like many people over the past few years, I took time out to consider my own priorities and personal ambitions and plans. I concluded that if I didn’t make a change and take the chance to challenge myself and pursue a niggling ambition to run my own business now I never would and might regret it. 


“Once I had made the decision to take control over my career I needed to remain partnered with a company that was truly independent, with no bias towards any products or providers. It was clear very early on that Continuum was the best place for this to happen.

“My aim is to offer better financial solutions – for life. Working with Continuum will help me to offer clients exceptional service and a lifetime relationship.”  

Continuum has a total of 71 advisers now within the partnership across the UK.


The firm is firmly based on a local presence and professionals with local knowledge and dedication.

Martin Brown, Managing Partner at Continuum, said: “We are committed to providing clients the most appropriate solutions to the challenges they face. Scott has an approach that is the perfect match for that commitment, proven expertise in all aspects of financial advice, and expert knowledge of the challenges and opportunities of the Scottish financial environment.

“His decision to work within Continuum is good news for us – and for the clients he will be working with now and in the future.”
