Fiducia had been shortlisted for two of the categories – Best Investment Adviser and Small Adviser of The Year. In each category we were the runner-up and while the immediate response was one of disappointment at being so close twice, on reflection we are delighted with the outcome in what is the 24th year of these major national awards.
In the three years we have entered, we have been shortlisted in at least one category in each year, we have won once, come second twice and third on one occasion. Having won The Small Adviser of the Year Award last year and come second the following year is, in my view, as good an outcome as we could realistically expect. We believe all these outcomes reflect a high level of consistency in terms of the scope and standard of service we seek to provide, which has been recognised by the judges.
