Our lives seem to get busier and more complicated as time goes on, with more bills, accounts and policies needing to be set up than ever before. Many of these are also now online, with the reduction of monthly statements being sent via the post to save on paper. Utility bills are not always with the same providers, we may have multiple digital subscriptions and it is getting easier to switch bank accounts with newer, less traditional financial institutions promising us better rates and deals.
Therefore, it’s becoming easy to lose track of what accounts we hold, where we hold them, and what exactly they are for, unless we do a personal audit on a regular basis. Plus, whilst not particularly a cheery thought, all these accounts and subscriptions need to be cancelled in the event of death.
To help provide some clarity and structure at NLP Financial Management we’ve put together an “easy to use” document called a Financial Passport. The aim is to enable our clients to store all their important information in one place, capturing essential details they, or their loved ones, may need now or in the future. It will prove to be an indispensable reference resource for managing their wealth, as well as containing personal details, which can be amended and reprinted / saved as any changes to policies and accounts are made.
During initial discussions, our clients have expressed how useful this will be to them, so we are hoping that this will provide an additional benefit of working with us as we assist our clients throughout their financial journey.
NLP Financial Management attended the annual Professional Adviser Awards ceremony recently, having been shortlisted for the Adviser Firm of the Year – London for the 7th year in a row. We are the only firm in London to achieve this accolade.
For 2020, we were also shortlisted for “Best Financial Advisers to Work For” for the 2nd consecutive year and our Paraplanner Janine Willis was included in the “Paraplanner of the Year” finalists.
The Professional Adviser awards are now in their 15th year, recognising the top UK financial firms for multi-asset investing, adviser support, client engagement and platform provision. They only consider companies that are client centric, who focus on delivering outstanding and consistent advice and who also understand the increasing role that technology is playing within financial planning.
Eleven of us attended the awards dinner held at The Brewery in London. During the ceremony we were very proud to have been Highly Commended in the “Adviser Firm of the Year (London category)” and announced as one of 13 companies named “Best Financial Advisers to Work For”.
Not only do these awards highlight the positive direction in which we have taken the business since opening in 2003, consistently driving to remain a leading firm of advisers, as well as an employer of choice, but they also recognise the high levels of dedication and effort put in by our staff. Teamwork is critical to a company’s success, in order for us to keep growing and delivering a holistic client facing service and our people are one of our greatest assets.

We’ve just received news that NLP Financial Management has received a third award nomination in 12 months! Having never before had so many nominations in a year, we have been selected as one of Professional Adviser’s “Best Financial Advisers to Work For” for the second year running.
Although all award nominations are important to us, this one we are especially proud of. This award requires a survey to be completed by all staff, so it underlines the fact that our people are happy to work here, developing their chosen careers in an environment that allows them to thrive.
We will discover in early February whether we are crowned the winners, however regardless of the final result, we are very proud of our team, our company ethos and culture and are committed to being an employer of choice that attracts, retains and nurtures exceptional talent within the financial services industry.
Professional Adviser (an information service for UK-based regulated financial advisers) have just announced their shortlist for their 2020 financial adviser and provider awards and we’re delighted that one of our team, Janine Willis, has been shortlisted for the Paraplanner of the year award, especially as she is one of just five Paraplanners in the whole of the UK to be shortlisted.
Janine has supported Graham Mendoza-Wolfson, one of our senior consultants, for many years and apart from achieving the Chartered qualification in financial planning, her technical expertise, high servicing standards and professionalism has been recognized through this award.
Alongside NLP Financial Management’s shortlist, for the 7th year running, for the Adviser Firm of the Year in London award, we’re incredibly proud of Janine’s achievement, which reinforces the outstanding advice process and customer care our team of people strive to deliver.
With these awards now in their 15th consecutive year, more than 200 advisers, firms and providers were taken into consideration in 2019. We will discover in February at a Black Tie ceremony, whether Janine will be awarded the winner, however this clearly demonstrates our company ethos is being widely adopted by our team, and helping us sustain our determination to remain a leading firm of advisers.
