About Us


Roger Taylor, Cambrian’s Managing Director, founded the company (as Cambrian Investments) in December 1973.

Based in Hawarden, North Wales (near Chester), since 1998, Cambrian has since grown considerably and has taken on more financial advisers and support staff to maintain the high level of service which is at the core of the business.

Roger and wife Norma, Financial Director at Cambrian, play an active part in the day to day running and continued growth of the business.

Roger and Norma care passionately about Cambrian, the staff, the clients and the future of the business and they are committed to ensuring the business continues in safe hands.

Cambrian is a family business – Roger and Norma’s son, Jack, is an adviser and director at Cambrian and their daughter Sally is also a director in the firm.

We are an independent company and we were recently awarded Chartered Status – the hallmark of excellence in the financial services industry.

Our advisers and staff understand that our Code of Ethics is at the heart of everything we do and we pride ourselves on the quality of service we deliver to our clients.
