Candidates this year submitted a piece of work to demonstrate their expertise in their chosen specialism, which included Multi Asset, IHT, Tax Efficient Investment, At-Retirement, Protection, SIPPs and Investment planning. Those shortlisted from this stage then had to submit a case study and attend an interview with the relevant panel judges where they were grilled thoroughly.
Fellow sponsors included AIC, Schroders, Octopus Investments, BlackRock, the FT Financial Adviser publication, NS&I and CAF and the evening was attended by professionals from the large corporates to privately owned family businesses.

The awards ceremony was compered by Sky Sports presenter, Hayley McQueen, and our congratulations go to all of the nominees and prize-winners on the evening, in particular to Chris Wordsworth of Hargreaves Lansdown, who was awarded the Alternative Assets Planner of the Year. The standard of expertise was obviously very high and the process the shortlisted candidates underwent rigorous.
