Mark Chicken

In 2021, I joined TPO as I feel the company embodies the values that I believe are vital for top quality financial planning. By combining leading with planning and the use of the latest technology, we at TPO can make evidence-based decisions for our clients' finances. 

As part of a diverse team, I have hugely appreciative that I have the opportunity to bring in industry experts to help with complex financial matters. Having the support of colleagues at all levels is what makes us stand out from the crowd. 

I have achieved Chartered Financial Planner status, a real reflection of not only my technical knowledge but also my industry experience and ethical values.

What drives me?

I am passionate about the concept of being better today than yesterday, and carry this principle into financial planning. Sweating the small stuff and making your money work harder today will ultimately decide the lifestyle you can achieve tomorrow.
