Bristol-based Paradigm Norton has been named the South West’s leading financial planning specialist at the prestigious Citywire awards for the eighth time.
The Citywire South West New Model Adviser® awards recognise the best fee-based financial planning firms across eight UK regions.
Headed by chief executive Barry Horner, Paradigm Norton was chosen from among thousands of firms after completing an in-depth survey which examined the firm’s professional qualifications, client satisfaction and more.
A shortlist of 220 firms were then judged on additional factors such as client education, communication and the use of technology to run an efficient financial planning business.
Mr Horner said: “We are thrilled to be recognised as a firm that delivers outstanding financial planning solutions to our clients.
“It’s wonderful to be recognised like this by the best in the profession – and wonderful too that it’s a Bristol firm leading the way and setting national standards of excellence.”
Mr Horner and his team were presented with the award by the chairman of Citywire Lawrence Lever and writer, broadcaster and actor Gyles Brandreth at the Park Plaza Westminster Hotel in London.
Paradigm Norton has won more than 22 awards since its founding in 2001. The 45-strong team continued to grow last year, both organically and by acquisition.
