Ainsworths Panacea was formed in 2000 to provide independent financial advice to people across the North West.
‘Panacea’ means remedy; our name echoes our roots in supporting business owners and medical professionals. Whilst we have broadened the types of clients we work with, we still firmly believe in finding holistic solutions that better your financial health.
Our beginnings can be traced back to 1926 through Messrs Holliday & Pickup in Glossop and 1974 to Messrs Ainsworth, Ridehalgh & McMahon in Nelson.
Today, we work closely with our sister company, Ainsworths Chartered Accountants. Both our Financial Planners and our clients benefit from the support and expertise they provide.

Hear from our clients
“During the seven or so years that I have been with Ainsworths, Ian Duffy has been in regular contact. He is keen to ensure that I am getting maximum value and benefit from my investments. I could not ask for a better service. Highly recommended.”
“Having never previously received financial planning advice, I was somewhat sceptical. However, I am now delighted that we had that first meeting. It’s great to have an experienced adviser looking after my portfolio. I can leave it to the expert.”
“As I have been so focused on saving money over the years, it’s refreshing to be told it's okay to spend some! I feel more confident in managing my financial affairs. It's good to know that the same advice will continue over the years to come.”
“We have been very pleased with the financial services provided by Panacea. Their financial experts are very hands-on and take a structured approach to personal wealth management. From the initial analysis of our finances and ongoing needs, through a comprehensive planning process, Panacea have managed our funds well, consistently outperforming alternative services to optimise our financial requirements.”
"David was recommended to us by an accountant friend and I have been extremely pleased with the financial investment and advice offered. David is a knowledgeable professional who is able to give informed advice on investments, financial planning and a range of other personal planning issues i.e. Wills, Power of Attorney etc."
