Quilter has been awarded Company of the Year because of its excellent service ratings across the categories in the Financial Adviser Service Awards 2020.
It obtained the coveted five stars in investments, protection and pensions, and in the new categories platforms and discretionary fund management.
For its discretionary fund management arm, Quilter Cheviot, 2020 has very much been about focusing on client service and supporting advisers.
Quilter Cheviot says its distribution team and investment managers have sought to remain on the front foot, proactively calling advisers and clients directly to ensure that they have all the right tools and support needed during this time.
Its platform, Old Mutual Wealth, also scored highly among advisers. According to the company, the team worked hard to enable advisers to use more digital processes, including allowing digital signatures.
Paul Feeney, chief executive of Quilter, (pictured) said: “What an unprecedented year it has been, quite unlike any other in my career. This pandemic and the speed at which the industry has had to respond presented unique challenges.
“That’s why being awarded Company of the Year at the Financial Adviser Service Awards means even more to us this year."
