About Leighton Ballantine

Leighton Ballantine

DipFA; BA Hons

I am a highly experienced Financial Adviser with 15 years industry experience. It had always been my vision to one day have my own Practice with my own clients. I researched several options and was pleased to accept an offer to join St. James's Place Wealth Management, where my vision has now become a reality!

With financial adviser numbers in decline and increased computer-based services being offered, it can be difficult to establish a relationship with an adviser you can trust. This is where Ballantine Wealth Management will make a difference.


After graduating from Nottingham Trent University with a degree in Business Management, I decided that a career in financial services would suit my passion for working with people and solving problems. Prior to joining St. James's Place Wealth Management, I had a successful career working for Lloyds Bank as a Financial Adviser and more recently as a Financial Planning Manager at Nationwide Building Society.

I am passionate about providing a professional service which will focus on my clients’ needs and aspirations. A personalised, bespoke approach can then be planned accordingly.

I am married to Svetlana and have two children - Milana and Maxim.

My interests include keeping fit, watching sport, and spending days out with the family at National Trust venues.

I am happy to be able to share my financial skills and experience as a Governor at my daughters school.
