Matt started his career as an independent adviser in May 2001 with what was then Towry Law, rising to become one of only four Executive Partners nationally. Following the acquisition of Towry by Private Equity house Permira in 2016, Matt left to establish Altor believing that there was a fairer way of advising his clients.
Matt spends most of his free time with his lovely family and with what is left, is a keen supporter of the England rugby team and fair-weather supporter of his local rugby team London Irish.
Jon started his career in 1988 running his own IFA business before selling it to John Scott & Partners in 2006. The firm became Towry shortly afterwards and he was appointed Senior Client Partner until his retirement in 2015. Jon has come out of retirement to join Altor believing that our innovative charging model and independence is just what his clients are looking for.
In his spare time Jon plays golf at two clubs and is currently trying to fight his handicap back down as his clients are keeping him busy.

Vaughan started his career in 1999 as a financial adviser with Lloyds TSB. In 2007 Vaughan joined Towry Law and in a few years became one of only a dozen Senior Client Partners. Following Tilney’s acquisition of Towry in 2016, Vaughan was promoted to Managing Partner of the South-East. Cultural and Philosophical changes meant the time had come to look for a firm aligned with his own values. Vaughan joined Altor as a Partner in March 2019.
Vaughan enjoys spending time with his large extended family, American Football and the occasional round of golf.
