“At Saffron clients always come first.”

Ali Sarikhani

Chairman

Ali is a qualified Chartered Accountant having trained in practice with what is now Ernst & Young. He was made a Partner in 1976 at the age of 29 and subsequently, in 1980, set up his own practice in London. The business was acquired by UBS in 1986 and grew organically by the acquisitions of Williams Jeffery Barber Limited in 1987 and Chiltern Limited in 1997. In 1997, following a buy out from UBS, the group was re-launched as Chiltern Group plc and grew substantially,servicing around 10,000 clients. In 2005 a divestment program was initiated, which resulted in the sale of the business via a series of disposals. Ali has interests in several other businesses including Tuxedo Money Solutions, a pre-paid debit card business, and is also involved in NLP who are a Partnership of Independent Financial Advisors.

In his spare time Ali enjoys spending precious time with his large family and pursuing his passion for Art, particularly of Persian heritage.
