About Ben Stark

Ben Stark

Chartered Financial Planner

Ben leads the team at Alexanders Wealth Management and has over a decade of experience advising businesses and families. He previously worked as an adviser for a global bank and consulted for another company before setting up Alexanders Wealth Management in 2017.


Ben is passionate about his role as Financial Adviser because he believes that when families work together, they can achieve better outcomes than by working alone, the team advocates this in all the work they undertake.

In June 2017, Ben was awarded the Advanced Diploma in Financial Planning from the Chartered Insurance Institute and became a Chartered Financial Planner. Chartered Status is the profession's gold standard for financial planners. It confirms that every Chartered Financial Planner has completed a suite of professional qualifications equivalent to a bachelor's degree. It also involves a commitment to continuing professional development and adherence to an industry standard Code of Ethics. You can view the Code at www.cii.co.uk/code*

Following further study, he became a Fellow of the Professional Finance Society and holds dual certificates in Family Business Advice and Family Wealth Advice via the Family Firm Institute in Boston, MA.

Ben and his team cover all areas of financial planning with particular expertise working with:

  • Entrepreneurs and business owners
  • Family businesses
  • Professionals

When Ben is not in the office, he likes to spend time with his wife Jenny, son Oliver and daughter Anna. He likes to go to the gym and likes to read books. He has just finished Team of Teams by Gen. Stanley McChrystal and is currently reading Chaos, by James Gleick. 

His favourite quote is from Stephen Covey:

“Until a person can say deeply and honestly ‘I am what I am today because of the choices I made yesterday,’ that person cannot say ‘I choose otherwise.’”
