Truly Independent, a company that its website says provides expert financial advice on pensions, investments, protection and mortgages as well as other financial services, received four nominations this year for Professional Adviser’s Women in Financial Advice Awards.
Truly Independent was founded in 2010 and says they strongly believe that everyone should have access to financial advice that is not governed or influenced by others.
The awards were created to celebrate the achievements of women working in the financial advisory community as well as in the financial services industries who strive to provide solutions to their clients.
The awards website states, “These awards are not about men versus women or whether a particular gender is more suited to a career or role in financial services – they are simply meant to celebrate and recognize the accomplishments of people. women in a sector where they continue to be under-represented.
The appointments included three of their independent financial advisers: Jane Williams, Emily Davies and Mary Hemingway.
However, winning awards is nothing new for Mary Hemingway, who also received the Unbiased Financial Advisor of the Year award at the 2020 Unbiased Trusted Professional Awards.
The fourth appointment was the truly independent director, Katie Brinsden, who has worked for the company for almost 10 years. Katie was new to financial services when she first joined Truly Independent and rose through the corporate ranks to recently become a director.
After receiving the nomination, Katie said, “It’s a real honor to be nominated for the award and it’s great to see the other women nominated as well.
It shows how much we support as a company to encourage women in financial services.
Now in their 4th year, the awards are designed to celebrate the achievements of women working within the financial advisory community and also in the broader financial services industry in the UK.
The winners of the various awards will be announced at a special gala ceremony in London on October 7, 2021.
