  • Certified Financial Plannerâ„¢
  • Chartered Wealth Manager

Grangewood's friendly and award-winning adviser, Sarah Harragan, offers clients:

Exceptional credentials

Sarah is a Chartered and Certified Financial Planner, meaning she has achieved the highest level of professional qualification in the industry; she is also a Chartered Wealth Manager. These exceptional credentials mean Grangewood clients not only gain access to a broad technical knowledge of markets, strategy and products, but also a guarantee that the advice being given to them comes from someone whose ability to do a good job has been independently verified.

Specialist knowledge

As a financial planner, Sarah can assess and advise on your financial position across the board, but she also possesses very specialist knowledge of particular areas that other advisers may not, including complex Pensions, Older Age issues and Generational Wealth Planning (how best to deal with inheritance issues and succession planning).

Lots of experience

Sarah started work in financial services in 1999, and has been a fully qualified Independent Financial Adviser since 2005. She is the second generation to take the helm of Grangewood Financial Management, having worked with her father Allan Harragan who was an adviser since the 1980s. We are proud that some of Allans earliest clients are still working with us today.

Sarah is a member of the Personal Finance Society (PFS), and sits on the Essex Regional Committee. As well as being a member of the Chartered Institute of Securities & Investment (CISI), and an affiliate member of the Society of Trusts and Estates Practitioners (STEP).
