Winners of the 2019/20 awards announced

November 29, 2019

The winners of the Personal Finance Society Awards 2019 were announced last night (November 28) by comedian Jo Caulfield at professional body’s conference, which took place this year at The International Conference Centre in Birmingham.

 

VWM Wealth Ltd was chosen to pick up the Chartered Firm of the Year due to the way it engages with charities, seeks feedback from clients to shape what if offers and works closely with universities to attract the next generation of financial advisers.

 

Lisa Johnstone, managing director and Chartered Financial Planner at VWM Wealth Ltd, said: “Our firm is about constant learning and improvement. We want to share what works for us and want them to share their experiences. We are pleased to win this award, which recognises how we strive for excellence.”

 

Picking up the award for Chartered Financial Planner of the Year was Gemma Siddle, director of Eldon Financial Planning. Ms Siddle wowed judges by explaining how she ditched her plans to enter the legal profession to take up a job that meant she could truly change people’s lives – financial planning.

 

The PFS also issued two lifetime achievement awards, both of which were given posthumously to Caroline Mitchell of the Financial Ombudsmen Service, and the second to Linda Woodall of the FCA.

Keith Richards, chief executive of the Personal Finance Society, said:

 

“Financial planning can transform people’s lives for the better and I congratulate all those who picked up a trophy for their outstanding achievements.”
