Manchester, Lancashire (PRWEB UK) 16 April 2014
As of April 1st 2014, The Office of Fair Trading was replaced with the Financial Conduct Authority to provide stricter regulations to companies operating within the financial sector.
With greater emphasis placed on how businesses provide their services, it’s reassuring to see many financial companies being recognised for outstanding performance while the industry was placed under the spotlight.
One such company that has received recognition is debt management specialists – Baines & Ernst – who won ‘Best Debt Solutions Provider 2014’ at the Financial Reporter Industry Awards.
“Our customers are at the centre of everything we do at Baines & Ernst and protecting their needs is of utmost importance to us.
“We continually strive to ensure our customers are provided with the highest standards of service, so it’s incredibly rewarding to receive such recognition,” says Shaz Sulaman, Commercial Director at Baines & Ernst.
The awards are in their fifth year now and the unique way in which the nominations are collected means excellence is based on votes – not judges or panels. With over 3,500 financial service intermediaries casting their votes this year, it’s clear to see that the awards are gaining in popularity.
“At Baines & Ernst, we’re committed to providing advice, support and guidance to those in financial trouble. We take pride in helping people to get back in control of their finances and find their way out of debt with the right solution. Winning ‘Best Debt Solutions Provider 2014’ is testament to the dedication and hard work of our fantastic team,” concludes Shaz Sulaman.
A full list of winners and highly commended companies can be found on the Financial Reporter website. The awards will take place in Manchester in May 2014.
