It is a privilege getting to know clients, colleagues and professional advisers, and to form long-standing relationships where we can share our expertise and add real value and depth to provide trusted advice.

The Women in Financial Advice Awards celebrate the achievements of women working within the financial advice community and the broader financial services sector. They are about recognising and amplifying the achievements of women in a sector where they continue to be under-represented.

 

Congratulating Cathy, Leigh Yeaman, Divisional Director and Head of the Belfast Office said: “I am thrilled for Cathy. It is a fitting accolade for her hard work and passion for improving diversity in the financial services industry.”
