Adrian Hook

Partner | Algarve and Southern Portugal

Educated and raised in Cheltenham, Adrian left the UK in his early twenties to explore the world. Starting in Europe and North Africa, he spent time living and working in Sweden before travelling around Southeast Asia. On his return to Gloucestershire in 1997, he joined the financial services industry and has been advising clients ever since.

Before joining Blevins Franks, Adrian ran his own financial consultancy business in Bristol. Initially meeting Gavin Scott, Blevins Franks’ Senior Partner, in Portugal in 1998, Adrian was eventually recruited to Gavin’s team and the Portuguese way of life in 2008.

Based in the Algarve office, Adrian has in-depth knowledge of the technical issues that high net worth clients face when living or retiring in Portugal. Being an expatriate himself, he has an excellent understanding of the cross-border planning opportunities that moving abroad can offer.

Adrian’s industry qualifications include a Diploma for Financial Advisers (DipFA), Certificate in Financial Planning (FPC 1, 2 and 3) he also holds a Certificate in Mortgage Advice and Practice (CeMAP).

Adrian lives with his fiancée, Nina, in the Eastern end of the Algarve near Tavira and in their spare time they enjoy the Ria Formosa to its fullest. Once a very keen scuba diver, Adrian still has water sports as a main passion, swapping his diving gear for a small boat and a paddleboard. When not on the water Adrian enjoys the local golf courses and still likes playing with his guitar collection. His grown-up children live in the UK, but of course, visit him regularly!

Adrian is an adviser for Blevins Franks Wealth Management Limited (BFWML) which is registered with the Malta Financial Services Authority. He is a member of the London Institute of Banking and Finance (LIBF).
