London, UK (PRWEB UK) 3 December 2012
AES International is named as The Sunday Times Virgin Fast Track 100 fastest-growing financial services organisation for the second year in a row and the fourth fastest-growing business in the United Kingdom for 2012.
According to AES CEO Sam Instone, ‘We’re delighted to be recognised as the UK's highest ranked financial services company by The Sunday Times Virgin Fast Track 100 for the second year running. To come in as the fourth fastest-growing private company in the entire country is something all of our staff, advisers and partners can be very proud of.’
The Fast Track 100 has been running since 1997, and uses a team of twenty researchers as well as freelance journalists to compile the tables. The awards have received widespread recognition, with former Prime Minister Gordon Brown describing them as ‘one of the great British institutions promoting enterprise’ and Sir Richard Branson stating that ‘The Fast Track has become the definitive barometer of top private companies.’
This year is AES International’s second consecutive year in the rankings, having been named 11th on the list in 2011. Of all the organisations that have made the list in consecutive years, AES has achieved the highest consecutive ranking; making this year’s achievement unique and places the business far ahead of other financial services organisations. Instone attributes this phenomenal achievement to the people within the business who typify the organisation’s core values of professionalism, integrity, knowledge, transparency and fairness, upon which the company is built.
‘It has always been AES’s mission to bring positive change to international financial services, exporting UK best practice and introducing standards where few existed, placing AES decades ahead of our competitors,’ says Instone.
‘It demonstrates that taking a radically different approach to the rest of the industry, being highly professional, 100% transparent, team-orientated and focused on improving both consumer and adviser outcomes is the recipe for long term successful growth. In addition to the industry recognition we have already received, including the Financial Times New Breed Adviser Award, and several Money Marketing award shortlistings, being recognised by The Sunday Times Virgin Fast Track 100 is an important credit, which will help everyone stay focused on achieving positive change within our market sector.’
