As Informed Financial Planning’s new business year has commenced, we thought a little recap was in order to remember the successful 12 months we have had. Professional Adviser named us as the ‘North East Adviser Firm of the Year’, we were revealed in the New Model Adviser Top 100 Advisory Firms in the UK and in October 2014, we celebrated our first 10 years in business. New advisers have joined the team along with new members of support staff, we’ve also had a number of exam passes which has even resulted in some staff becoming chartered!
But what about the individuals within the firm? To mark the start of our new business year, we’ve asked each individual at Informed Financial Planning to name their top 2 achievements of the year… We’ve had a mixture of answers and some, well, different to say the least!
