Allan Buckley


I have just moved back to the Bristol area after spending the last 14 years living in Cheltenham. I graduated from the University of Gloucestershire in 2010 with a degree in Accounting and Financial Management and have worked in financial services ever since. 

I love the challenges that come from Paraplanning which sees me work with financial advisers to help clients achieve their financial objectives. I was drawn to Ovation for their passion to deliver the best service to their clients and help them achieve financial wellbeing. 

My career goal over the next 18 months will be to achieve my Advanced Diploma in Financial Planning which will enable me to continue to develop in my profession. 


Outside work

In my spare time I play cricket for my local village cricket team and I am a keen West Ham United supporter.
