Chris Wickham Dip PFS (Director)

Chris has worked in the Financial Services Industry since 1989 and has worked as an Independent Financial Adviser since 2001 when he cofounded the Financial Planning Centre. He is qualified to Diploma level and enjoys the challenge of ensuring that the best interests of his clients are served by the ever changing financial services industry.

Chris says ‘’Our company specialises in looking after you. Our aim is that our clients will remain our clients. We will always explain your options in as simple a manner as possible, and help you make the right informed choices. But we won’t stop there. Providing ongoing service, advice, and regular reviews, is just as important to us in making sure you receive a complete financial service’’

Chris is married, and has a son and daughter. His hobbies include playing golf, badminton, the piano; and he also enjoys backgammon.

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!!!!!

My adviser Chris is someone you can trust and I really do. He has excellent judgement and taste - hotels, fine wines, craft ales and above all cakes. He can be relied upon to bring something new to every meeting we have - and it is usually in what he calls a ‘wrapper’. He goes to great lengths to understand my needs and preferences and never recommends a product which does not feel is good for me. All the cakes he brings are fresh - nothing from Mr. Kipling! Where beers are concerned he searches the market for that new brew which has a twist but is never stronger than I can handle!. He encourages me to think long term in the wines he recommends and on his advice I have bought several vintages for my cellar which have improved with keeping. The best feature of the service Chris provides are his tasting notes. After every meeting he writes up the products he has recommended, so that I have a really good record and can go back and remind myself of the best ones again and again. From this description you might think that my Financial Adviser is a Fat Cat. Not a bit of it - when he's not eating and drinking, he is out walking the hills or playing a vigorous game of badminton. He is a great guy and a role model for me." Cheers, Chris

I have used Chris for over twenty years regarding mine and my wife finances. He has advised us about our pensions, insurance policies and other investments. The advice has always been clear and informative and we have never been pushed into anything. I have always felt Chris has our best interests in mind and would recommend him to any of my family and friends.

All options were explained clearly and concisely. More importantly those aspects of the old and new plans which I did not fully understand were fully examined. Overall I am delighted with your service.

I contacted the Financial Planning Centre in 2014 for pension planning and advice, and I would strongly recommend them. Their representative, Chris Wickham, explained everything fully and clearly and in terms I could understand, and was always available to answer any questions. He dealt with everything quickly and efficiently, and I am absolutely delighted with the outcome.
