Marcus started his career as a Gunnery Officer in the Royal Artillery in 1977, serving in the usual local theatres of the UK and Germany when there was still a West and East Germany, before finishing his time with an exotic final tour in Belize.

 

Marcus entered the financial services arena in 1983 when he became a ‘Life Inspector’ with Legal & General. Earning a promotion after only a year, he was seconded to the top salesman in L&G for a couple of days, which led to him being head hunted by Chase De Vere in May 1985.

 

Marcus stayed with Chase De Vere until March 2009 when the effects of the Lehman Weekend in October 2008 finally brought down another ‘Independent Mortgage Advisor’ firm affected by the financial recession.

 

The 24 years of working in the West End with Chase has let him define himself as someone with expert knowledge in his chosen field of mortgages and protection, with a broad understanding of all aspects of financial & tax planning that has enabled him to develop a loyal following of repeat business from his client base. During his career Marcus has established an extensive network of business and banking contacts to help service the varied needs of his clients.

 

Creating One Stop Finance Group in 2009, with other like-minded colleagues, has let his many varied clients have access to a completely new portfolio of products and services and, over the years since the company was established, let him take his existing, and new, relationships to a new level.

 

One benefit of working in the North London office has meant he enjoys a much shorter commute and can therefore have more family time with his wife, Mandy, and two daughters. A keen tennis player, skier and motor sport fan his other great love, as many of you may know, is his penchant for films.
