Nigel Grice
Nigel Grice, Director and Financial Adviser
Tel. 01865 751722
Email. InfoGriceAdvice.co.uk
After completing two degrees, one in Psychology and one in Mechanical Engineering, Nigel decided it was the world of financial advice that he would really like to work in. So, in 1993, he became a Financial Adviser, originally working through Allied Dunbar, then Zurich and now has a franchise with Openwork.

Nigel has run his own business since 1997 and is qualified to Diploma level in financial services. He provides his clients with advice across all areas of financial planning. This includes help relating to wealth management, retirement planning, estate planning (inheritance tax), mortgages and protection advice.

Away from the office Nigel likes cricket and golf and spending time with his family and Bertie the border terrier…….who also happens to be the office dog and head of security!

In 2002 Nigel ran the London Marathon and it is a commonly held view amongst his friends that he only beat the man “running” in a 120lb antique diving suit who took 6 days to complete the course because he dipped for the line!!
Tracy Duckworth
Tracy Duckworth, Mortgage and Protection Adviser
Tel. 01865 751722
Email. InfoGriceAdvice.co.uk
Tracy has over 20 years experience in Financial Services. She gained her BA (Hons) degree in Business Studies and Sports Studies in 1993 and after a brief spell in advertising she joined Sun Life (later Axa ) in the sales department. After four years, and reaching the post of Consultant, Tracy moved onto work with large insurance companies such as Royal Sun Alliance, Prudential and MetLife where she worked as a Business Development Manager.

Despite achieving great success in her previous roles, Tracy has always been keen to work directly with clients, and in 2014 she gained her Mortgage Certificate to run alongside her Financial Planning Certificate. She then joined Nigel Grice & Associates where her professionalism, cheery disposition and infectious enthusiasm has endeared her to our clients.

Away from work Tracy’s 2 young children and a love (addiction to!!) running keeps her busy. In her teens Tracy was a very good heptathlete and her claim to fame is that as an Under 15, she was 10th in the UK at high jump! Given she is only about 5 foot tall this was a remarkable achievement!
Sophie Grice
Sophie Grice, Office Manager
Tel. 01865 751722
Email. InfoGriceAdvice.co.uk
Sophie has a background far removed from the financial industry and joined the company to provide support to Nigel and the team.

She gained a B.A (Hons) degree in English back in 1987, and followed that up with a Post-Graduate Diploma in Journalism. In 1989 she joined the BBC and worked in radio news and television news programmes for over 15 years including lengthy spells on Radio 4’s World at One programme and ultimately as Deputy Editor on BBC 2’s Newsnight.

Now her time is divided between looking after two young children, the family border terrier and working for Nigel Grice & Associates. She manages the team, writes financial reports and newsletters, manages the website and picks up any other jobs that help ensure everyone else can get on with the all-important job of supporting our clients.

Sophie loves cooking and is currently working her way through the latest “Great British Bake Off” book. She loves tennis and it is rumoured that as a teenager in South Africa, she was Zululand Tennis Champion! This is a charge that Sophie hotly refutes!
