Second Place Again…

Second place again

The Professional Adviser awards 2016 were held in London on Thursday evening. I didn’t attend, frankly for a firm our size, spending around £4,500 on an evening meal up the road, just doesn’t stack up as much of a worthy use of resources, which I would rather use to invest into improving our services to clients.

It was our third year in a row as being short-listed as firm of the year for London, the largest and perhaps more fiercely competitive category. It is highly improbable that we would win given our size, the other ten short-listed firms are simply much bigger, some are national firms. Anyway, I am delighted to let you know that we were highly commended – second place, again!

So, we didn’t win, but that’s a pretty good effort isn’t it! Confirmation of the result can be found by clicking this link. #paawards2016

Thank you to the team, all those that we work with and of course our clients. There are of course lots of categories, in essence the awards are there to encourage and promote excellence. Thanks to the judges for recognising what we are trying to do.

Congratulations to London winners John Lamb, who pipped us to the post and also won the overall UK firm of the year.
