Just two months after becoming the only firm to win Moneyfacts Investment Adviser of the Year award twice and then being named one of the top 100 financial firms in the UK by Citywire, Strategic Solutions have picked up a third prestigious national award, the Personal Finance Society’s “Later Life and Retirement Adviser of the Year”.
Unlike the previous two awards, this one was specifically honouring the achievements of one of the firm’s partners, Allan Cruse. During the ceremony hosted by Gyles Brandreth at the impressive Camden Roundhouse the Chief Executive of the Personal Finance Society Keith Richards said Mr. Cruse had demonstrated superior ability in the provision of specialist retirement and later life advice. There is no higher accolade than being recognised as a personal finance award winner by your professional body. Award winners and finalists act as ambassadors for our profession and should be congratulated for their commitment to high professional standards.
“The exceptionally high standard of the candidates presented the judges with an extremely difficult choice in every single category, which is testament to the expertise and excellence of all that were shortlisted.
The Personal Finance Society is the largest professional body for the financial advisory profession in the UK, with in excess of 35,000 members. They promote the highest standards of professionalism for technical knowledge, client service and ethical practice across the entire financial advice community for the ultimate benefit of consumers. Allan Cruse, immediate past president of the local branch of the Chartered Insurance Institute said: “At Strategic Solutions, our advice process is central to our proposition and the way we look after our clients and their money. I feel extremely proud to be recognised by the expert judges and I will continue to work hard to help our clients. I would like to thank all of our staff, clients and Personal Finance Society for their support.”
