Jim Galbraith

Jim’s wisdom, presence and dry wit simply stood him apart. He will be sadly missed by all of us.

I first met Jim on joining Scottish Friendly Board as a Non Exec in around 1994. Jim was not long back from passing his MBA with the encouragement of Scottish Friendly. It certainly proved a good investment for both.  I particularly took to a wonderful dry sense of humour well mixed in with a …

It was with such great sadness that I heard of Jim’s passing. I lost contact with Jim after leaving university but have such happy memories of our time at Heriot-Watt. Jim’s character shone through then as it does in the many messages that have been left in the rememberance book. Sue and I would …

We were all very lucky to have Jim at Scottish Friendly. He was a true gentleman, liked and greatly respected by everyone. A lovely man who will be sorely missed. …

It’s difficult to know what to write in response to such a sad thing happening, so I’ll just say that I found Jim to be a likeable, funny, interesting, genuine person, and someone for whom I held a great deal of respect. He made me feel welcome in the business right from the start …

I will not be the only person who will miss you. We had many good nights out through the years, the Nucleus first birthday party was one of the best. Some of the best memories. You were not only my boss, but my friend.  Jim bridged the gap between management and staff – what …

Jim, I’ll always remember you as larger-than-life, with a ready, dry wit and a tremendous knack for making friends. You were a good man and a gentleman – we’ll miss you. …

Working with Jim as a pension trustee was always a pleasure. He was genuinely interested in people and kind and considerate in the way he interacted with everyone around him. He was a fantastic example of how to shine through as a human being in a work environment no matter how senior you become. …

Steven Cameron

I became close friends with Jim (or Jimmy as he was to us back then) over 40 years ago when we started our actuarial journey together at Heriot Watt University in 1980. It was clear to us all even then that behind a quiet and understated front was someone who combined huge intelligence with …

My sincere condolences to the family and friends of the late Jim Galbraith, also to his colleagues, board members and all staff at Scottish Friendly.  While I did not know him as well as his work colleagues or associates, I had a great appreciation of the person he was and of his ethics. He …
