A Linlithgow man who is now living the dream in Qatar is giving budding local financiers the opportunity to do the same.

David Russell (35), who was raised in Baronshill Avenue and attended Linlithgow Academy, joined the financial planning company Guardian Wealth Management after studying law at Edinburgh University.

After successful stints working as a financial advisor in Geneva and Brussels, he took over the company’s Qatar division in 2011.

Now earning a tax free salary and spending his evenings out with famous sports players, David will be making several trips home over the coming year to recruit the best in finance from Edinburgh and the Lothians.

He said: “This is a fantastic opportunity for anyone perhaps aged 25-40, with few commitments.

“The lifestyle here is incredible – fantastic weather, good money, you’re right on the beach for swimming, jet ski-ing and fishing and you don’t have to pay tax or National Insurance!”
