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 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.

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.

Chris Wickham has consistently provided clear advice, backed up by timely paperwork so you know what you are getting into. Face to face reviews have taken place when required and my portfolio has grown. Using the platform makes it easy to review at a glance what the investments are doing at any point in time. Questions are sorted with humour and patience.
