Chris Wilkinson

DipPFS

Independent Financial Adviser

Chris joined Finance Shop in 2010 after advising clients face to face for a widely recognised insurance firm since 2006.

Gaining the DipPFS diploma and transitioning to an Independent Financial Adviser with Finance Shop has given Chris the ability to offer a greater service to clients both old and new, who also often refer their friends, colleagues and family members to him.

Chris likes to pride himself on going through the finer details and putting together a practical plan for clients that is well researched and thought out.

Richard Garwood

Consultant

Richard has been in the insurance industry since 1991, when he began working for a large insurer. This gave him a good grounding in the industry, and in 2006 he joined Finance Shop after running a small IFA practice. 

From this point on Richard decided to concentrate on the areas of protection and mortgages, and now also works closely with Nick Buchan on the corporate business side, dealing mainly with business introduced to us by accountancy connections. As well as new clients, Richard still deals with people who he first helped many years ago. 

Outside of work he enjoys family life, and his interests include fishing, playing golf and reading.
