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.
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.
Numbers give me a headache, but Chris my FPC adviser is like an ibuprofen that takes the headache away.
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.
We have been clients of the Financial Planning Centre since the company first started, and Chris also looked after us before then. In all this time we have received friendly and well explained advice and service from our Financial Adviser, Chris Wickham. Our investments have done well, we receive regular updates and meetings, and I know I can call any time if there is something I need to speak about. I would happy to recommend both Chris and the Financial Planning Centre to anyone.
The Financial Planning Centre has looked after our portfolio now for 10 years. We retired in 2005 and were in need of a financial consultant to look at our savings and pensions etc. I contacted F.P.C and our consultant Chris (now like a friend ) arranged to make a visit. He did a full evaluation of our income and expenditure plus savings and gave us advice on how best to invest for our particularly cautious requirements. F.P C also contacted numerous pension providers on my behalf when I retired and as a result I purchased an annuity, plus a cash sum to suit me, from the most suitable one. We receive a full documented account and assessment of our finances at our annual visit from the consultant, and when an investment matures he arranges a visit and gives advice on the best way to reinvest. Chris is available by phone or email at any time for advice and even at holiday periods we are never left without a contact. We find it a very relaxed and stress free way to do our business. We would most certainly recommend F.P.C to anyone no matter how large or small their investments or finances.
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.
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.

I have been a client of the FPC now for over 14 years, and I find them to be an excellent company to deal with. I feel confident that their choice of investments are the right ones for me. I get excellent service and my adviser Chris Wickham visits my home at least twice a year to review my investments, give advice, and bring me up to date with everything. Thank you FPC for all your help and best wishes to you in your new premises.
Hi Chris, just to say that we have both been happy with all you and your company have done for us over the years.
