National honours for DWIFA adviser
DAVID WILLIAMS IFA has won national recognition for its work with the media to help improve consumers’ understanding of financial issues.
DWIFA adviser Stephen Womack scored a double success at this month’s Unbiased Media Awards. These awards celebrate independent financial advisers who work with journalists to bring money topics to life for the public.
Unbiased.co.uk is a national service that connects consumers with a trusted, independent adviser in their area. It also runs the ‘Bluebook’ media service for those IFAs who are willing to work with the press to help consumers make sense of financial topics.
Stephen, who became an adviser with David Williams IFA in 2013, won the ‘Bluebook Newcomer’ category. This was reserved for those who joined the Bluebook team in 2014, and made a big impression in the press.
The panel of judges, including experienced journalists and financial industry leaders, praised Stephen for his expert commentary across a wide range of financial topics, ranging from investments and savings to pensions and tax planning.
He was presented with his trophy at a gala awards ceremony in London last week.
Stephen says: ‘It is flattering to be recognised as a trusted source of help and advice. By working together with the media, advisers can ensure that consumers are better informed in this ever-changing world.’
Stephen was also commended as runner-up in the Investment Adviser category, an endorsement of David Williams IFA’s in-depth expertise in this vital area.
He says: ‘The commendation in the Investment Adviser category was really special as the shortlist contained advisers from some of the largest organisations in the country. It is really pleasing that a bespoke approach to advice from a Northamptonshire IFA can stand out at a national level.’
