Mark Thompson – Company Director / Financial Planner
I am Mark Thompson and have lived in Suffolk all my life, but as of yet, not perfected the Suffolk accent! I am married with one daughter and live just outside Sudbury. I am a friendly, warm and outgoing individual who likes to socialise with family and friends.
My working live started at Barclays Bank as a junior, where I undertook many varied roles within Barclays until I became a financial planner for the bank, dealing with personal and corporate clients. I left Barclays early in 2003 , due to a strong desire to personally drive myself forward to achieve more in my life, I decided to set up my own business; Thompson Financial Consulting was born.
Starting with no clients and empty filing cabinets, I knew I could succeed with dedication, self motivation, hard work and with many late nights, my business is now very successful and I pride myself on the proactive financial advice I give to clients.
I am a member of the Chartered Institute of Insurance; The CII is the premier professional organisation for those working in the insurance and financial services industry.
“It is dedicated to promoting higher standards of competence and integrity through the provision of relevant qualifications for its members at all levels and across all sectors”
I am a member of the local chamber of commerce and Business Networking International (BNI) is the largest business networking organization in the world. BNI offers members the opportunity to share ideas, help to develop each others businesses and make new contacts.
I believe my clients deserve an adviser who knows them and their finances extremely well and fully understands their needs and their financial goals. That’s the only way to ensure you get the most appropriate products and services for you. My philosophy is simple; your financial needs and requirements are at the heart of what we do. It isn’t my business to sell financial products. You come to me for advice and I help you make the most appropriate decisions by giving you fair, accurate and impartial advice. I give advice that you can trust.
