The Bristol UK based Jaguar Enthusiasts’ Club is the largest Jaguar car club in the world serving some 14,000 members within the UK and overseas who share the passion for one of the world’s most iconic brands.  As the range of benefits to JEC members continues to grow, the club has announced a significant long-term sponsorship, advertising and presenting partner agreement with Atkins Ferrie Wealth Management.

AFWM will be a presenting partner of the JEC Summer Jaguar Festival currently in planning for late July 2024.  Details of this very special 40th JEC Celebration weekend which will be held over three days will be announced by the Club in the coming weeks and promises to be a once in a lifetime opportunity to enjoy all things Jaguar in a superb hotel location with a wide range of events, seminars, forums, and entertainment available to members and their families whilst celebrating forty years of the world’s leading Jaguar Club.

AFWM Co-Founder, Managing Director, and Head of Investment Committee John Waldie BSc (Hons) DipPFS commented:

“I can’t contain my excitement about working with the JEC in the coming years.  Having visited the Castle Combe racing circuit recently for the Club’s TrackSport day and having met lots of members, it is key that enthusiasm and fun are central to the JEC, and as a former engineer it was great to mix again with many like-minded people. 

Our strong ethical values at AFWM set us apart from our industry and as Independent and strongly impartial advisers I am also excited about how we can help JEC members in the coming years to steer through the financial opportunities and challenges ahead.  Great financial advice is about getting to know and understand each other, and I know my team are really looking forward to meeting a thoroughly interesting, but also fun collection of individuals.”

Peter Purdom, Chair of The Jaguar Enthusiasts’ Club said in the press announcement:

“As part of our ongoing quest to add value to our members I am delighted to be announcing this new partnership with Atkins Ferrie Wealth Management. Having met with John and his team at Castle Combe I was very pleased to find at first hand a clear confirmation on our shared values and to understand in more detail the ways in which we will be able to work together.

They will be in attendance at some of our events this year and will be one of our headline presenting partners for the 40th Anniversary celebrations at our unique 3-day Jaguar Summer Festival to be held in the Midlands next year. I recommend you getting to know them and exploring ways in which they may be able to help in all aspects of financial planning. Whilst based in the South of England, AFWM have clients up to the highlands of Scotland and across into Wales and would welcome contact whatever your location.”

Dan Driscoll BA(Hons) DipPFS, AFWM General Manager (East) said:

“Atkins Ferrie Wealth Management are delighted to begin this strategic partnership with the Jaguar Enthusiasts Club and to present their historic 40th anniversary celebrations in 2024. On first learning about the desire of the JEC board to provide an expanded range of lifestyle benefits to its membership, it became clear that there is an excellent opportunity for us to support this initiative by offering the most ethical, professional, and knowledgeable financial advice to members and their families.

We have a successful history of partnership with charity and non-profit organisations and hope that our involvement with the JEC will bring tangible benefits to as many of their members and associates as possible while facilitating the production of a truly special event in 2024”.

In addition to collaborating in presenting the 2024 JEC Summer Festival, AFWM will be providing an on-site financial seminar and look forward to meeting fellow Jaguar enthusiasts at various events in the run up to the 40th Celebration Weekend. Later this year both John Waldie and Dan Driscoll will be interviewed on the JEC Podcast.
