Bestinvest triumphs at the Investors Chronicle & Financial Times Wealth Management Awards

14 June 2013
 

Named UK Wealth Manager of the Year and Best Wealth Manager for Investments

Bestinvest, the leading wealth manager, won two awards at this year’s Investors Chronicle & Financial Times Wealth Management Awards including the prestigious UK Wealth Manager of the Year. Bestinvest was also named Best Wealth Manager for Investments at the ceremony, which took place in London on 13 June.

The awards recognise the very best of wealth management in the UK. They are voted for by readers of the Financial Times and Investors Chronicle, and a select panel of judges. The aim of the awards is to identify the best wealth and investment managers available to investors in the UK by asking their clients to rate the service they receive, by comparing performance and by interviewing managers.

Bestinvest won the two awards against stiff competition from a number of the industry’s key competitors.

Peter Hall, Chief Executive Officer at Bestinvest, said: “We have seen strong growth in our wealth management business over the past few years which is reflected in the growth of our assets under management. This is an exciting time for Bestinvest, and we believe that our business model is structured in such a way as to continue this trend.

“Winning the Investors Chronicle & Financial Times Wealth Management Awards is testament to the hard work of our wealth managers across the UK. Our strong showing underlines our capabilities and I would like to congratulate the team on its commitment to delivering a high-quality service.”
