We are proud to achieve

Number three in FT Adviser’s Top 100 firms

We have been ranked number three in the UK in FT Adviser’s Top 100 Financial Advisers for 2022.

Achieving Chartered status for its financial planning arm was judged to be a significant factor in placing third with 17 of the top 20 companies accredited in this way. 

Other factors taken into account were how long teams had managed assets, the rate at which companies had grown and their experience operating in different economic and interest-rate environments.

Punter Southall’s financial planning business numbers among only 14 per cent of firms to be granted Chartered status, a qualification earned by going above and beyond for clients.

A guide to the value of financial advice

How do you actually put a value on advice? Can it simply be shown as an increase in asset value driven by recommendations made by those who class themselves as experts, or is it more than that? We feel the real value comes from offering support and guidance, so that you can achieve your life goals.
