Could you be our &#39Oscar&#39 winner?

Money Marketing this week starts its annual search for the best IFAs in the country with a call for entries for our prestigious industry awards.

All IFA editions of this issue include a brochure outlining the eight Money Marketing IFA awards. These are designed to honour the best individual IFAs in the pension, investment, mortgage, protection and corporate sectors as well the IFA making the best use of technology and the firm contributing most towards its staff&#39s professional development.

The ultimate accolade is the Money Marketing IFA of the Year. Read the criteria for each category and in not more than 350 words tell our judges why you should win. You can also nominate a colleague or another firm.
