Professional Adviser has opened up entries for the 2021 PA Awards: Shining a light on adviser excellence in a changing world, which will take place virtually on 11 March next year.
If you believe your business boasts an outstanding, client-focused and repeatable advice process, then please do make sure the company is in with a chance of being named Adviser Firm of the Year for your region - with one winner ultimately to be crowned the overall ‘Adviser Firm of the Year'.
Now in its 16th year, the awards will also celebrate Paraplanner of the Year, Best Client Engagement, Best Adaption of Technology and many more. We will also be celebrating the successes of firms who do their best to support advisers, such as platforms, DFMs and multi-asset managers and others.
The list of gongs this year includes a few new additions as we look to celebrate the effort advisers have gone to in looking after vulnerable clients during undoubtedly challenging times throughout 2020, as well as the integration of ESG into the advice process.
Four new ESG categories have been added to the line-up this year. Best Multi-Asset Group for ESG, Best Multi-Asset Fund: ESG, Best ESG Solution for Advisers and Best Adviser firm for ESG.
In total, more than 200 advisers, firms and providers were under consideration for last year's vintage of the Professional Adviser Awards, which seek to reward excellence within both the financial advice profession and among the broader financial services community.
For all the information on judging, methodology and the full list of categories visit the PA Awards 2021 website. The deadline for entries is 8 January 2021.
