Numbers give me a headache, but Chris my FPC adviser is like an ibuprofen that takes the headache away.
We have been clients of Chris Wickham for over 20 years and have always found him to be helpful and proactive in getting us the best deals on our, pensions and other investments. We would definitely recommend him to anyone.
Chris Wickham at the Financial Planning Centre was recommended to us by my brother. He has given us advice on savings, ISAs, bonds, pensions and investments. Products that he and his company have recommended to us have performed well and we have been very satisfied with his work. We have received straight forward advice, carefully explained and backed up with a written report on what has been discussed and what action has been taken. Yearly reviews are backed up with e mails on new developments and points of interest. I would happily recommend Chris and the FPC to someone wanting financial advice … AND he makes good sponge cake!!!!!
As a widow I didn’t know where to start to make sure my future was secure, I felt I needed someone I could trust. For over 17 years The FPC have looked after me and my savings. In Chris Wickham I have found the very best. He is always there for me and I know whenever I need help or advice I get nothing but the very best from him. My daughter and an elderly uncle are now also with the F P C and all we can say is Thanks a million for all your help and advice and friendship.
We were recommended to Chris and The Financial Planning Centre by our friends and they have been to my wife and I, what we all search for, a Company that's a friend. We are not mega investors, but the help and advice we have received from our adviser has just been, for us, top drawer. Peace of mind. You can't beat it. We thank all the team.
Thank you to Chris and the FPC for the sound financial advice I have received over a number of years. It has been much appreciated and very successful.
Hi Chris, just to say that we have both been happy with all you and your company have done for us over the years.
I've always found the FPC and Chris to be extremely helpful. They are there when needed without being in any way "pushy". Very happy to recommend.
We have been clients of the Financial Planning Centre since the company began. In all this time we have received excellent service from our Financial Adviser, Chris Wickham, We feel that our investments are exceptionally well managed by the company. We receive regular updates from Chris and he always makes sure we understand any developments or changes which need to be made. This is a 'client-friendly' company which we would heartily recommend.
As two people who have no experience of financial dealings we have found over the years that the Financial Planning Centre have been extremely helpful, assuring us of their advice and attention, in what for us would be a difficult and potentially hazardous area. Chris Wickham has always taken time to explain to us all of the transactions he has undertaken for us, and also he has readily given advice over the phone on other related questions we may have had. When contacting other company members eg. Secretaries, they have always been courteous and friendly.
