What We Do

We are a Financial Services company that works with you to help shape your financial future by bringing a clear, straightforward approach to your financial planning.

Our business is based on three core principles; Integrity, Professionalism and Outstanding Service, coupled with a creative approach to financial planning.

  • John Draper -


    John was born and brought up in Sutton Coldfield and grew up on Pennswood Drive – hence the Company name. He is married with a son, Eric, who takes up most of his spare time.

    John played amateur football for many years, but injuries and old age meant he eventually he had to hang up his boots. He now manages a junior side which is proving more challenging and time consuming than he ever imagined.

    In his business life John is responsible for the operational management and development of Pennswood. Additionally, he works with existing and prospective clients and specialises in working with individuals or businesses whose requirements are unique and sometimes complex.

    John adopts a personal hands on approach and, like the other team members, believes that good service and keeping promises made to clients and to business contacts should be fundamental.
