We are thrilled to announce that three female members of staff have been shortlisted in this year’s Professional Adviser Women in Financial Advice Awards 2021.
Now in their fourth year, the awards are not about men versus women, or whether a particular gender is more suited to a career or role in financial services; they are designed to celebrate and recognise the achievements of women working within the financial advice community and also the broader financial services sector in the UK, a sector where they continue to be under-represented.
The following have been shortlisted in their respective categories:
Nicola Barclay: Financial Adviser of the Year – London
Emma Hunt: Woman of the Year – In House Adviser Support
Dani Shaffery: Woman of the Year – In House Adviser Support
Every nominee will now be asked to complete a short questionnaire in order to progress to the next round of judging – the deadline for which is Wednesday 7 July. A shortlist will then be created from which our panel of judges will decide the winners in each category.
The judges will take into account factors such as an individual’s achievements in the workplace; challenges faced; evidence of contributions to support and inspire women; and the overall quality of the submission.
The identities of all the winners will then be revealed at a special gala ceremony in central London on 7 October 2021.
