Winners of our Paraplanner Awards 2019
14 June 2019
We are delighted to announce the winners of the Professional Paraplanner Paraplanner Awards 2019.
The awards were announced immediately after this year’s record attended London Technical Insight Seminar, to an audience of paraplanners and financial services companies gathered to hear who had won this year’s accolades.
Our thanks to this year’s sponsor – Parmenion
This year we increased the number of awards to better reflect the distinct role of outsourced paraplanners, to recognise new talent in the profession and to highlight the role of administrators, who are equally as important to a well run financial planning business.
You can find the shortlist for the awards here. Everyone who made the shortlist is to be congratulated as there was a record number of entries and the standards of entry were very high.
Expanding the number of Awards meant we also had to increase our panel of judges. This year’s judges can be found here. Many thanks to them for their time and input.
