Quilter claims the top spot

Quilter’s advice business has come top in this year’s FTAdviser Top 100 Financial Advisers list.

Each year, FTAdviser's Top 100 Financial Advisers list sets out to showcase some of the best financial advisory businesses working in the UK.

A range of data is used to rank businesses, as FTAdviser believes the quality of a business isn’t reflected just by how big it is in terms of number of advisers and sales. The criteria looks more widely at other factors important to clients seeking the best person to help them with their finances, including:

  • The growth rate of the advisory business
  • The number of years’ experience each business has managing assets in different economic and interest-rate environments
  • How well-qualified their advisers are
  • Flows of client money and how investment choices have influenced asset growth
  • Retention of advisers.

The achievement is recognition of not only of the growth of Quilter’s advice business, Quilter Financial Planning, over the past year, but also its continued commitment to providing quality face to face advice.
