“After years working with the FCA reviewing bad advice and malpractice, it feels good to provide sound financial advice with a company that reflects my own beliefs and values.”
After university, Stephen put himself through the financial advice qualifications. Doing his exams lead him to a career in completing Section 166 review projects up and down the country on behalf of the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA). Section 166 reviews occur when the regulator has growing concerns about regulated firms activities and appoints an independent skilled person to investigate the allegations. After six years of running around the country, Stephen joined FPC in 2017. He has since been able to apply his business, compliance, and technical skills to enhance our planning team’s breadth of experience.
Stephen has the following professional qualifications:
- BA Hons Business Marketing Degree
- Diploma in Financial Planning
- Diploma in Accounting
- Chartered Associate of the London Institute of Banking and Finance
His primary responsibilities include delivering sound financial planning advice and building strategies to help clients achieve their life goals.
Outside work Stephen enjoys Saturday league football, darts, badminton, rambling and having a boogie.
