International Financial Adviser
Dave has principally spent the majority of his working life since 1982 as an accountant both for commercial enterprises and offshore structures in Jersey where he was brought up. As well as owning and running several commercial businesses he also managed a large team of administrators and accountants for a very well known international insurance and private equity group. During Dave's accounting life he helped set up and register funds with the regulators and prepared financial statements (accounts) for many funds, similar to those which a financial adviser might recommend to a potential client.
He changed career to become a financial adviser and has worked in both Spain and Jersey since 2009. Dave says that “accounting and financial advice go hand-in-hand so to have both skill sets is helpful”.

“My dealings with Dave Diggle of Blacktower last year  were quite protracted for various unavoidable reasons but Dave was thorough, straight and professional throughout. In the end I was happy to follow his advice and have been pleased with my investment.” Mr P, Torrevieja
“We have dealt with Dave Diggle of Blacktower for over 3 years [since 2015] and we cannot recommend him highly enough. We first met Dave when he came and sorted a release of a UK pension, we had tried for over 16 months unsuccessfully to get the pension released, thanks to Dave it was sorted out quickly due to his perseverance and determination. Since then he has looked at our savings and arranged tax efficient bonds for us, whereas our money was making nothing previously due to the poor interest rates, we are now able to have a good income from our investments. Dave is always ready to handle any questions, quickly and efficiently. We like the fact that we see him face to face when needed and we are not dealing with a voice at the end of the phone. He always carries out any dealings we have with him with the utmost professionalism and good humour.” Mr & Mrs D, Los Montesinos
“I can recommend Dave Diggle of Blacktower Financial Management for financial investment advice. As a cautious saver, the various options and plans were explained in full and excellent advice given. The investments we made have grown and we are more than happy with the service provided".  Angela Haram, customer assistant at the Post Room, Benijofar.
"A big thank you to Mr Dave Diggle for his perseverance in getting my pension transfer finally sorted out. Having discovered a "hidden" pension from years ago worth in the region of 50,000 pounds sterling I wanted to transfer my pension so that I had the option to draw down some of the money tax free annually. Communication with the original provider proved nigh on impossible but Dave persevered and finally after almost a year everything was sorted. I cannot recommend Dave Diggle highly enough and the business relationship does not end with this one transaction as Dave, is always at the end of the ´phone or email to offer advice about any investments. Well done Dave, you have 5 stars from me! If anyone would like verification of this testimonial then please contact me by email and I will be happy to talk to you either by email or on the telephone." Susan Reader, Quesada
