Radcliffe & Co
Radcliffe and Company was established in 1959 by Wyn Radcliffe from premises in New Road, Southampton. For over 50 years the company has provided Informed, impartial and independent advice to corporate clients large and small and to individuals from all walks of life.
Wyn Radcliffe retired in the mid 1980s and our Directors are Darren Fulford, Finance Director who joined the board in 1998. Managing Director, Neil Igglesden was appointed to the board in 2003. Our Business Development Director Mike Crossen and Human Resources Director Mike Hughes were appointed to the board in 2006, before Mike Hughes took a step back from the board in 2017 to a Manager role.
The Company has expanded significantly since its formation and now boasts 21 Registered Individuals. With the administration staff necessary to support their work, we are recognised in the industry as a large, regional Independent Financial Adviser. Probably one of the largest independently owned firms on the South Coast.
The Company’s success has been due to the acquisition of smaller local brokers and the recruitment of quality staff. This policy has produced benefits for both Radcliffe & Co and its clients.
Insurers classify us as a large regional firm and, as such, we attract the best terms available in the industry. Radcliffe’s client base is now in excess of 15,000 and we also administer the pension schemes of over 130 different employers.
The Company and staff are very much part of the community and we have been able to provide sponsorship to a variety of local sporting clubs, including cricket, youth football, rugby and netball. Charity work is also an important part of our commitment and via our staff we have raised funds for local and national charities with additional contributions being made by the Company.
Shares in the Company are now owned by the management team and consultants and all are committed to the concept of professional quality advice being provided by appropriately qualified consultants.
