Following his graduation from Bournemouth University with a degree in business and finance, Chris embarked on a career in finance, working for a well-known independent financial adviser.
Chris's fast ascent from technical analyst to practice manager taught him how to run a successful advisory firm. Further roles taking charge of a team of technical analysts taught him the importance of building the right pool of knowledge and skill sets to deliver excellent client service and enable smart decision making.
Chris took his knowledge and experience on to further success before setting up Frazer James. There, he guides the business forward, managing day-to-day operations.
Chris is a Chartered Financial Advisor and a Certified Professional in Financial Advice, both awarded by the London Institute of Banking & Finance. He also holds a Diploma in Financial Planning, awarded by the Chartered Insurance Institute.
