After much debate, we can finally reveal the six candidates up for the Personality of the Year gong at next month's Professional Adviser Awards.
The nominees have been selected by the editorial teams behind Professional Adviser and IFAonline.co.uk, from a shortlist derived from suggestions from readers.
The award is the final gong handed out - and therefore the showpiece - at the annual Professional Adviser Awards, which will this year be held at The Brewery in London on 13 February.
The winner of the award is decided by a unique voting process. Readers can vote (VOTING IS OPEN!) by text in the days leading up to the awards (with all proceeds going to charity the Stroke Association), then attendees will also get the chance to vote on the night. Please see the foot of this page for more details.
Who of our six canadidates do you think should win the coveted Personality of the Year award?
Now, our nominees...
Managing director, IFA Centre
"Put her money where her mouth was, stood up and made a difference."
Gill has been a stand-out personality in the financial advice sector in recent years (she was also nominated for this award last year), and 2013 has been no different.
Her passion for independent advice is second-to-none, and this was particularly evident in her campaign for justice for advisers and clients affected by the Arch Cru saga. Most are agreed: Gill has fought, and continues to fight, the good fight for IFAs.
To vote for Gill, please text A Gill to 70099. Texts cost £1 plus your standard network charge, with all proceeds going to the Stroke Association. Only one vote will be counted, but you can vote more than once should you wish to donate more than £1 to the charity.
