Nucleus, the adviser built wrap, has announced the appointment of Stephen Tucker, managing director of The Fry Group, as a non-executive director to its board.
With offices in Hong Kong, Singapore, Brussels and across the UK, The Fry Group offers financial planning for clients including investment and tax services.
Tucker has been managing director of The Fry Group since 2008 and is also a director of Nucleus IFA Company (NIFAC) and has served on the Nucleus advisory board for six years.
He began his career in 1978 as a tax officer for the HMRC in Brighton. Following roles at Lloyds bank and accountancy firms Kidsons and Mazars, he joined The Fry Group in 1995 as an investment consultant.
Tucker becomes the sixth non-executive director appointment to the Nucleus board.
Commenting on the appointment, Paul Bradshaw, Nucleus chairman, says:
“Stephen has an incredible wealth of knowledge and experience in the financial planning industry so his appointment to the Nucleus board as a non-executive director is a perfect fit for the business. His long career in our field gives him the best possible perspective to help support Nucleus’ growth as a leading platform provider in the market. I’m delighted to welcome Stephen to the board and I’m incredibly excited that our community will be benefitting from his invaluable insight.”
Stephen Tucker comments:
“As a passionate advocate of client outcomes and delivery via wraps, I am delighted to be an IFA voice in the Nucleus business. Nucleus is almost unique in its engagement with IFAs, listening and responding to client needs as voiced by the IFA, rather than dictating terms as was the case in the old life office-led world. Long may this be the case.”
