Henry Irwin, Principal Partner

Henry has worked in financial services for over 15 years and founded Fortress Wealth Partnership LLP in 2008.

Since entering the personal financial services sector, Henry has always worked to provide the very finest services to his clients. Thorough and innovative, he meets the needs of those who want help in designing a successful financial strategy for their future. Henry concentrates on aiming to increase clients’ net asset value through a total return investment strategy. Often, by the use of sensible tax planning, he is able to achieve this goal whilst also reducing clients’ overall liability to Income and Inheritance Tax.

Henry lives in Hampshire with his wife Holly and two children Arthur and Margot. He enjoys golf and cycling but is terrible at both.

When not working Joe can often be found muttering about what a talented sportsman he could have been if it weren’t for his unfortunate injury record.

Jack Carter

Jack has worked in financial services since 2010. He started his career in Exeter working for a Chartered Wealth Management firm whilst doing his certificate and diploma exams.

He moved to London and started working for Fortress Wealth Partnership LLP in 2016 as a Wealth Management Consultant. Jack enjoys the client relationships as much as the technical side of the industry. Jack is an all-round holistic financial planner driven by ensuring he satisfies his clients' financial goals.

Jack is working towards his Chartered advisor status and in his spare time can be overheard wondering how there are so many people in London compared to the West Country.



Georgina Dalziel

Georgina joined Fortress Wealth Partnership in 2016, having previously worked for a large asset management company.

Combining her strong interpersonal skills with an organised and systematic approach, she is responsible for the day to day operational management of Fortress Wealth Partnership. She works closely with Henry to ensure our client needs are met to the very highest standard. Alongside managing and developing our support staff, she is the point of contact for all recruitment and HR matters and is currently working towards her CIPD HR diploma.

Georgina grew up in Northumberland and Scotland, before relocating with her family to New Zealand. Since returning to the UK, she loves spending time with friends, travelling and cooking.



Tanyel Saffet

Tanyel has worked at St. James’s Place for the last 15 years supporting advisers in their business administration. Joining Fortress Wealth in 2010, Tanyel has seen the company grow from strength to strength. She supports the advisers through her thorough approach to business administration, not letting a thing ‘slip through the net’.

Tanyel spends most of her spare time running around after her little toddler.



James Pask

James joined Fortress in October 2016 after studying Politics and Economics at the University of Kent where he gained a real interest in the financial world.

As well as providing adviser support, James is studying towards the Diploma in Financial Planning with the long-term goal of becoming an adviser.

A keen sportsman, James played rugby and football at university and still holds on to the hope that Liverpool will win the league in his lifetime.



Owen Dawson

Owen joined Fortress Wealth Partnership in September 2016, having completed internships with a variety of large financial institutions. Owen has quickly taken a shining to the world of Wealth Management, and is studying towards his Diploma in Financial Planning with the aim of becoming an adviser in the near future.

Owen graduated in Geography from King’s College London, and was also chosen to incorporate a period of study abroad as part of an exchange program with the University of California. Rather than running along the golden beaches of Santa Barbara, he is now often seen running along the banks of Thames – regularly to and from work, a far cry from his time abroad.



Andrew Baird

Andrew was born and raised in Wellington and having studied Economics at University, quickly realised that he needed to move to the UK. New Zealand’s loss is Fortress Wealth Partnership’s gain - Andrew is currently our Client Services Manager, developing our computer-based client management system Curo, as well as providing support to the Advisers. Andrew is studying towards his Diploma in Financial Planning.

Andrew is a sport nut. He gained an ITF tennis world ranking as a junior in 2008, meaning he has been gradually getting worse ever since. If he isn’t making an attempt at a British accent around the office, he can be found on the golf course on the weekend, or having a jam in his all-Kiwi band.
