Chris is often asked how he finds advising clients who aren’t famous having worked with so many celebrities and high profile rock stars…
“I’ve found that deep down everyone’s financial concerns are broadly the same. Whether you are the most famous QC, a wealthy television personality or running a small business. Some of the numbers might have a few extra zeros on the end, however the need to provide for family and have a sense of financial security drive most people to seek professional advice.“
Chris’ interests include walking and reading and most importantly spending time with his family. He is married to his partner of seventeen years and they have two daughters of school age.
