On Thursday, FMB Directors Ruth Power and Gill Forrester were among the 350 advisers and other members of the financial services community packed into The Brewery in Central London for the 2020 Professional Adviser Awards.
After being shortlisted for three awards, we were absolutely ecstatic to come away with the prestigious title of 'North West Adviser Firm of the Year' which covers the whole of Cheshire, Liverpool, Manchester, Lancashire and Cumbria. This award was judged on submission of a detailed financial planning case study, a comprehensive questionnaire as well as testimonials from clients.
We were also one of 13 firms nationally to be named one of the 'Best Advisers to Work For' - an impressive status which we have managed to hold for the last three years. This is judged by an employee survey conducted by the Best Companies Group.
Managing Director, Liz Beavis said, “We were able to keep the news secret so we could announce it at our annual conference the following day, which was this year held at Eskdale Youth Hostel. We are all thrilled to win this award because it is based on technical excellence and the highest standards of client service.”
