Adrian Murphy has been named a Winner in the fifth annual Growth Investor Awards, the landmark event that celebrates the standout investment providers who help SMEs to thrive.

For five years, these awards have shone a spotlight on the providers who have an impact beyond investment: creating jobs, boosting economic growth, and supporting innovation. Their investment inspires optimism into companies up and down the UK. And it is fanning an entrepreneurial spark that has made the UK a leading producer of growth companies in recent years.

The Financial Adviser of the Year award recognises individual financial advisers who promote alternative investments. It’s judged on how they educate themselves and how they apply expertise to add value for their clients. 

The full list of finalists for this prestigious prize were as follows: 

  • Christopher Feeney (Advanta Wealth)
  • Robert Lewis (Celtic Financial Planning)
  • Stephen Jones (Clear Solutions)
  • Jonothan McColgan (Combined Financial Strategies)
  • Toby Owen-Browne (Finura Partners)
  • Ed Holder (Holder & Combes)
  • David Stamp (Independent Financial Solutions)
  • Adrian Murphy (Murphy Wealth)

Commenting on becoming a finalist in this prestigious awards event, Adrian shares that 'it is an absolute honour to be named the Financial Adviser of the Year. These things don’t come easily but with the right team behind you driving towards the same intentions to help our clients, and our community, then it seems that much more achievable! We are delighted and can't wait to share this with everyone that we work with.'

Winners of all the awards categories were announced at an exclusive black-tie dinner hosted for over 450 guests on November 6 at the Royal Lancaster Hotel, London.

“We launched the Growth Investor Awards five years ago to celebrate the inspiring individuals and leading organisations whose talents and commitment help growing businesses to power Britain’s economic growth,'' says Guy Tolhurst, Managing Director of Intelligent Partnership, the organiser of these long-standing awards.

He adds: “The winning companies at this year’s event demonstrate the impact beyond investment of growth capital. Every penny of investment in early-stage businesses has a real-world effect. It inspires optimism in growing teams, creates jobs, boosts regional economies, and drives innovation.”

Finalists have been chosen by Intelligent Partnership’s research team, guided by an advisory board. The best entries were passed to a second round of judging carried out by at least three people from an independent panel of 41 judges, to provide a diverse mix of qualified perspectives. All of the judges’ scores are collated to determine the winner, with all finalists receiving a personalised feedback and benchmarking report to provide insight about areas for improvement.
