Our team

Mike Godfrey

Chartered Financial Planner
Chartered Wealth Manager – CFPTM Chartered MCSI

Mike has worked in finance since 1978 and as a financial adviser since 1989 working with firms with a strong City bias. In 1999, Mike realised a desire to set up his own financial planning business, FS3 Ltd, so that he could stay close to his clients.

FS3 became a high profile and award winning firm, winning New Model Adviser of the Year ~ South East Region in 2006 and 2007, and Bankhall Member of the Year in 2006. Because of its success FS3 was acquired in 2008 by the wealth management / employee benefits division of a global financial services business, where Mike stayed until 2010.

Now the desire and sentiment that created FS3 has become Cube Financial Planning, a business dedicated to putting its clients first.

Mike was a Director of the Financial Services Skills Council between 2007 and 2010. In 2007 and again in 2008 Mike was included in Professional Advisers “Britain’s Top 50 Most Influential Advisers” and in 2012 the “New Model Adviser Top 100”. During 2014 and 2015 Mike was a member of the Education Committee of the Institute of Financial Planning, before its merger with the Chartered Institute for Securities and Investment. Mike is now a member of the CISI South Coast committee.
