New IFP award open to UK adviser firms

The Institute of Financial Planning has launched a new award to recognise firms that show “vision, enthusiasm, promise and overall business acumen”.

The David Norton Building Excellence Award is now open to applicants, with the winning firm receiving 10 days of mentoring with business transition consultancy FP Advance.

An IFP spokeswoman says the award is an annual event to remember the life of David Norton.

She says: “David is often seen as one of the founding fathers of planning in the UK and the profession owes a debt of gratitude to David and others for the work that they have put in over the last 20 years in seeking to build this new profession.

“The award will allow us not only to continue to remember David and all the work that he did over the years to help Financial Planning and Financial Planners, but it will also channel valuable support into firms which show the vision, enthusiasm, promise and overall business acumen that are essential requirements for a successful practice.”
