The Personal Finance Society has announced the chartered awards 2013 are now open for entry and nominations.
The awards, which are open to all PFS members, aim to recognise the achievements of individuals and firms in the financial planning profession.
This year’s awards will be hosted by comedian Hugh Dennis at the ICC Birmingham on 7 November.
PFS chief executive Keith Richards says: “Recognising individual and firm achievement at all levels is a really important part of our annual event.
“Not only should we fully recognise the achievement of all advisers who achieved diploma by the required deadline, it is encouraging to see the number who are continuing to drive forward to chartered, which now exceeds over 3,500 individuals and 500 firms.
“Being able to distinguish yourself in a profession where standards have risen and advice labels become more blurred has never been more relevant.”
