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.
