Carla Brown

Founder and Managing Director

Oakmere Wealth Management Ltd


I established Oakmere Wealth Management Ltd in 2011.

I have worked in Financial Services for over 24 years in which time I have undertaken a significant number of qualifications. I achieved the status of Chartered Financial Planner in 2012 and I am a Fellow of the Personal Finance Society. I am also a member of the Society for Later Life Advisers (SOLLA) and hold the Later Life Adviser Accreditation. In 2018 I graduated with an MSc in Wealth Management from Loughborough University.

In 2021 I won the PFS ‘Financial Planner of the Year’ award and in 2019 was awarded the inaugural title of ‘Best Chartered Financial Planner 2018. I also won the EISA ‘Best Financial Planner of the Year’ award and was Highly Commended as ‘Role Model of the Year’ & ‘Best Financial Planner -North West’ at the Women In Finance Awards. I work with clients all over the UK and embrace client centred financial planning believing that true wealth is about more than just money.

Prior to setting up Oakmere Wealth Management Ltd, I had a successful career working as an IFA for a large bank in their private client team but felt I wanted to give my clients more of a personal, relationship-based service and so decided to set up my own practice.

I work closely with other professionals such as solicitors, accountants and other financial services specialists to ensure that my clients receive the best advice available. It is not unusual for me to work alongside clients’ own professional advisers, making the process simpler and saving valuable time.

Because of my strong client focus, I build my business solely on introductions, both from my private clients and from other long-standing professional relationships. My clients are happy to recommend me to their friends, family and colleagues so that they too may benefit from the sound professional advice they have themselves received.

I have a 19 year old son, and in my spare time I enjoy trail running, trips away with my family and friends, and walking my crazy dog, Archie!
