Our commitment to export UK best practice has positioned us as the polar-opposite of many of our competitors, and our client-focused approach has attracted a great deal of new business.
London, UK (PRWEB UK) 10 December 2012
In their recent Top 100 Financial Advisers 2012, the Financial Times Adviser has placed AES International in the top 50 of all financial adviser businesses in the UK for 2012, based on turnover relating to financial advice. The industry ranking, which lists the 'biggest players in financial advice', puts AES at an exemplary 41st position out of all those surveyed.
The award represents a major success for AES, and comes on the back of a period of sustained growth for the firm. Having been named as the fastest-growing UK financial services firm for 2011 and 2012 by the Sunday Times Virgin Fast Track 100, AES has firmly established itself as a leader within the international financial marketplace.
CEO Sam Instone commented, ‘At AES we are a highly-differentiated organisation with a unique investment proposition that provides security, financial wealth and peace of mind for our clients. Our commitment to export UK best practice has positioned us as the polar-opposite of many of our competitors, and our client-focused approach has attracted a great deal of new business.’
‘We are delighted to be named in the FT Adviser Top 100, and will continue to improve client outcomes as we strive to positively change international financial services. The upcoming challenge of the RDR presents an exciting opportunity for our firm to continue to adopt the very highest standards, regardless of jurisdiction, to deliver the best financial services to our clients.’
Having started in 2000, the FT Adviser awards are now in their 13th year, and are the result of an extensive research process. Each year over 2,000 financial advice firms are surveyed, each of which has an annual turnover in excess of £1m. From this, the top 500 are whittled down until only the 100 largest financial advice firms remain. The list attracts some of the biggest names in the financial services profession, including St James’ Place, Hargeaves Lansdowne and Barclays Bank.
