About Us


... a proven team

Our commitment to building long term relationships with our clients is reflected in the dedication and stability of our partners and senior personnel, several of whom have been with the firm for many years. The late Michael Merridew led the firm for over 30 years and was joined in 1999 by the current managing partner, Colin Chalkly-Maber, who was instrumental in modernising Farley & Thompson to meet its strategic objectives and technological requirements, whilst continuing to maintain an ethos of service and concern for clients.


For those unfamiliar with the stockmarket any one of the broking team will be happy to help over the telephone or in the comfort and privacy of our Bournemouth office. We will describe what support Farley & Thompson can offer you from our range of services depending on your investment experience and requirements.


We will explain your options, help you set investment objectives and work with you to achieve them. Additionally, if you have complex financial planning requirements and need the services of other financial or legal specialists, we will be happy to introduce you to one of our professional contacts.


Many clients enjoy the continuity of working with one particular team member and our intention is always to enable our clients to be comfortable about their investment decisions, and to feel they can seek as much or as little advice as they wish.
