FINANCIAL services firm Sesame has scooped two top industry awards.
The Lindley-based company was recognised for the high quality services and support it delivers to independent financial advisers and mortgage brokers across the UK.
Sesame won Best Network and Support Services provider for the second year running at the prestigious Money Marketing Financial Services Awards 2010 in London. And on an evening of double celebration, Sesame was also named Best Mortgage Network.
Sesame, which is part of the Sesame Bankhall Group, is the UK’s largest provider of support services to financial advisers and has been named top UK IFA for the last five consecutive years by FT Business publication Financial Adviser.
In January this year, Sesame also won a top accolade at the Professional Adviser Awards 2010 when financial advisers across the UK voted it Best IFA Network.
Last year, Sesame acquired professional support services businesses Bankhall and PMS. The combined group now supports more than 10,000 independent financial advisers and mortgage brokers.
Stephen Young, Sesame Bankhall Group’s chief operating officer, said: “We are delighted with this double award recognition – and it is by focusing on our customers and helping them through the tough economic challenges of the last two years that our group has itself continued to be successful and profitable.
“This is testament to the hard work of our people and it gives us a strong platform for continued future success. “
He added: “Independent financial advisers and mortgage brokers deliver a valuable service to millions of people in local communities across the UK, and we believe that in the years ahead their skills will be in even greater demand from the British public.
“We are operating in a tough competitive market, but the expertise of our people and the quality of our services means that we are in great shape.”
