ifa Excellence Awards 2021 Dealer Group of the Year
We’re delighted to announce that the Lifespan group (Head Office and adviser network) won three awards in the recent 2021 IFA Excellence Awards, including the coveted Dealer Group of the Year!
Lifespan CEO, Eugene Ardino was announced Dealer Group Executive of the Year, for the third consecutive year. Eugene commented, “I regard this as a recognition of everything the Lifespan team and community have achieved over the past year. To win this award in such a challenging year is humbling”. We are acutely aware that over the past 12 months the industry has suffered serious contraction, as many adviser groups and advisers have struggled to cope with both regulatory change and the unique difficulties presented by the pandemic. Thankfully, Lifespan has been able to adapt quickly and successfully to navigate these challenges, and continue to support our advisers.
More importantly, we had a strong presence as a group in finalist nominations for these awards, being represented across 13 categories. This demonstrates the quality of advice firms that we have in our network. We would like to congratulate the following Lifespan advisers on both their success last night, but also for being recognised as finalists. We are really proud of our Lifespan adviser community, and of Prashant, Sheshan, Kris, and Daniel for achieving this well-deserved recognition!
Congratulations to Kris Meuwissen, Wealtheon, being awarded Client Servicing Individual of the Year. You can catch Kris chatting with Michael Gershkov about ‘Building a thriving advice practice of the future‘ in a recent Lifespan Live podcast (Season 2, Episode 2).
What an amazing result!
