"Players win games, teams win championships."
Bill Taylor (1929-2011)


John Doney
Managing Director

I started Capital Tower Ltd in 1989 – albeit under a slightly different guise at the time. It was a natural step from my role as a senior consultant at a major insurance company; where I was able to meet many successful Financial Advisers and formulate the approach that Capital Tower has taken. Key to this is my desire to keep Capital Tower at the forefront of our industry, and to be the best we can. Hence we were the first adviser locally to have our own in house compliance department, to recommend an investment platform instead of one company; and subsequently use Wrap accounts.

Over the years I am pleased to have built up a great team of people who work with me. Many of these have been with me from the very early days. The same is true of many of our clients. This long term relationship remains the most rewarding aspect of what we do and reminds us all that our business is about people not money. My desire to be the best I can means that I am constantly researching new ideas and reading industry books. My general love of books and music also provides some of the lighter parts of our Market Commentary.

I count myself incredibly lucky to do this job. All of my close friends are clients, and many clients have become friends. What 'spare time' I have is devoted to my wife Pam and twins Joshua and Sophie. This involves me in many activities such as following my son with his local rugby team, and my daughter with her theatre work, playing squash, visiting the gym - and general leisure/taxi activities, but still leaves a little time for quieter moments.


We seek to achieve a fair reward for the work we do. We are not cheap, nor are we expensive, what we are is exceptional value for money.

We offer a brief initial consultation to new clients at no cost to them. Every fee package will be different depending upon the amount of work we do and the level of ongoing service provided. Be assured that written fee proposals will be provided in advance and will always be agreed with you beforehand.



To provide you with the right advice and guidance at the right time, in a friendly and efficient manner.
