We won!!!!! Last week saw the 2020 edition of the Money Marketing Awards and with us easing out of lockdown it was virtual ceremony this year.
However, that meant the whole team could be there this year…and what a year for it!
We were over the moon to sweep the boards and pick up both awards we were on the shortlist for, the Next Generation Advice Firm of The Year and Small Advice Firm of The Year.
We have put together a wee video with some of the judges’ comments, you may have seen Adrian’s reaction to winning on social media, if not copies are available on request.
The judges said that Murphy Wealth stood head and shoulders above the competition for both awards. They liked our use of internships, the development of a graduate scheme and how we had embraced technology.
Our focus on a good culture within the firm was also something that the judges admired, as well as our efforts to better understand a client’s behavioural approach to finance to ensure advisers can help educate clients about their decision making.
“Client manager roles will develop into financial planners and will give good succession to their business and the profession. They also use lots of technology in their business, run community work and charity work.” MMA Judge
Judges were pleased to see the company invest in the growth of our team, technology and our ambitious plans to expand the business. They liked our keen desire to be a role model for the industry and our vibrant and progressive approach that keeps coming up with new client-centric ideas.
"Anyone who knows us will understand how much work we have put in over the last few years to build a better and better Financial Planning business. For me it’s the crowning moment of 17 years of hard work and building on Brian’s legacy. And of course, none of this would be possible without the support of a great team around me and the support of our wonderful clients, some of whom have been with us for the whole journey. Thanks to everyone and I look forward to be able to celebrate with you in person on the terrace soon" Adrian Murphy, CEO
Whilst awards are great – and we certainly celebrated last week – what really drives us is helping our clients achieve their dreams. This is just the beginning; we have been working away over the last few months on a number of projects that are aimed at delivering an even better service and more meaningful financial planning to you our clients.
