Professional Adviser is once more issuing the call for adviser businesses from across the UK to showcase their knowledge, skills and commitment to client care by entering our 2021 Awards.

We are very much looking forward to celebrating the success and achievements of advisers and adviser firms after an indescribably difficult 2020 for everyone. So if you believe your business boasts an outstanding, client-focused and repeatable advice process, then please do make sure the company is in with a chance of being named Adviser Firm of the Year for your region – answering a case study provided by the PFS – with one winner ultimately to be crowned the overall ‘Adviser Firm of the Year'.

Now proudly in their 16th year, the awards will also recognise the best in multi-asset investing, platform provision, adviser support and client engagement, as well as crowning our Paraplanner of the Year and Adviser Personality of the Year.

In light of the positive feedback it has generated over the last few years, Professional Adviser will once again be running our Best Financial Advisers To Work For survey and awards – more detail on which you can find here.

In keeping with the times we have added four new ESG-themed awards for multi-asset houses and financial advisers alike and, while vulnerable clients have been particularly important in 2020, we have introduced a Best Vulnerable Client Care Award for this year as we search for advisers who have gone above and beyond to make sure their more vulnerable clients have felt reassured and financially safe.
