Granite Highly Commended at National Awards

Granite Financial Planning is delighted to announce they were "Highly Commended" in the CISI (The Chartered Institute for Securities & investment) David Norton Building Excellence Award at the 2018 Financial Planning awards held in Birmingham.

The nationwide award is named after one of the founding members of the Institute of Financial Planning, David Norton, and since its launch in 2007, the award is given annually to one business that has demonstrated excellence in their values, business strategy and structure.

Managing Director Paul Gibson said “As a relatively new business being recognised at national level is a fantastic endorsement of the work we do. David Norton was passionate about delivering financial planning and we believe it is the most important function a financial planner can perform.

The application and interview process looked at our approach to financial planning, our business plan, use of technology and whilst we were Runners Up on this occasion we will aim to continually improve our service going forward."

CISI head of Financial Planning Jacqueline Lockie CFP FCSI, said: “We are delighted to congratulate such worthy winners of this year’s Financial Planning awards.   

“It shows how good and healthy Financial Planning is in the UK.  The winners are at various stages of their own personal and business Financial Planning journeys and it is a privilege to be able to recognise the best.   

“We congratulate all the entrants for their hard work and effort that they put in not just for these awards, but on a daily basis to provide great Financial Planning to their clients.”
