Aifa was recognised for its work reducing the regulatory fee burden on members, ensuring the retail distribution review benefits the IFA profession, and for its thought-leadership in producing its recent retirement white paper.
Aifa independent chairman John Gummer MP says: “We are delighted to have our work recognised in this way. I am grateful for the extraordinary hard work of the executive team who go into battle for our members on a daily basis.
“Reducing the fee burden on intermediaries by £11.7m, campaigning for a positive outcome in the RDR, and producing such an insightful report on the future of retirement planning are just three of the major successes for Aifa in the last few months. But these would not have been achieved without the action and support of our council and boards. We really are only as strong as our members want us to be and we need their continued support to ensure the voice of the IFA profession is heard loud and clear.”
