John Diking

Private Client Manager | Nerja, Málaga, Mijas, Marbella, Nueva Andalucía

John has been living in Spain and working in financial services since graduating with a Business Masters degree in 2003. Following international financial adviser roles with Spanish banks, Bankia and Bankinter, he gained 11 years’ experience at Lloyds Bank in Gibraltar. Part of the Senior Management team there, he supervised a team of regulated advisers before becoming a Private Banking Advice Manager to high net worth clients across Europe. He joined Blevins Franks in April 2019.

John is a member of the Chartered Insurance Institute (CII) and holds the Diploma in Regulated Financial Planning. He also has a Master of Science degree in Business Administration (MSBA) from the University of Gothenburg in Sweden. 

Based in the Mijas office, John works closely with the local Partners to look after clients in the Costa del Sol, as well as supporting them in acquiring new business. Key responsibilities include undertaking regular reviews to make sure clients’ wealth management and tax planning continues to deliver the best results for their circumstances and goals. 

Having fallen in love with the country after spending a year in Madrid for his studies, John decided to relocate to Spain when he graduated rather than return to his native Sweden. Fluent in Spanish, as well as Swedish and English, John has made the Málaga region his home and enjoys making the most of the weather, food and lifestyle that the region has to offer.

John is registered with the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) in the UK and is a Member of the Chartered Insurance Institute (CII).
