Wealth manager and adviser finalists for Growth Investor Awards announced

Twelve financial advisers and wealth management firms have today been announced as finalists for the Growth Investor Awards.

The awards recognise companies and individuals helping start-up and ‘scale-up’ businesses realise their full potential and power Britain’s economy.

Guy Tolhurst, managing director of Intelligent Partnership, which runs the awards, says: “Our second set of finalists recognises both individual financial advisers and wealth management companies, their commitment to research and education, how they apply their expertise to add value for their clients, and how proficiently they promote alternative investments.

“These two awards celebrate the stellar work being undertaken by the intermediary community to enhance their knowledge and apply their expertise to broaden their investment propositions and better serve the needs of their clients.”

Previous winners of the financial adviser of the year award were Carl Lamb of Almary Green and Jonothan McColgan of Combined Financial Strategies. UBS claimed the Wealth Manager of the Year award in 2016, which was won by Barclays Wealth in 2015.

The winners across all 16 categories will be announced at an exclusive black tie awards dinner, to be held on 8 November at the Royal Lancaster Hotel in London.
