Last night, Edinburgh based Carbon Financial Partners was named the Personal Finance Society (PFS) Chartered Financial Planners of the Year 2015.   Firms who have managed to achieve Chartered status represent the pinnacle of the emerging financial planning profession, so this award is probably the most prestigious in financial planning. It also reinforces Carbon’s position as one of the UK’s leading financial advice businesses.

Speaking from the awards ceremony at a Gala Dinner at the Lancaster Hotel, London, Managing Director Gordon Wilson said, “I feel so proud accepting this award on behalf of the fantastic team we have at Carbon.  This is possibly the biggest award in our industry and winning it is recognition of the quality and high standards of everyone involved with the business.  It is especially rewarding because it is not only about the quality of advice and service we offer clients, but also the contribution we make to both the communities we work in, and to the financial planning profession in the UK.”

The PFS Chartered Awards recognise the positive contribution that Chartered status is making to the reputation of financial planning as a trusted and valued profession. Receiving a Chartered Award from the PFS, the UK’s foremost professional body, represents the ultimate endorsement of excellence and professional achievement.

Naturally, all of the staff are delighted with this latest achievement, as it highlights our commitment to providing the best possible advice and doing the right thing for every client we work with. And, whilst our primary objective is always to do the best we can for our clients, it is very pleasing to be rewarded for doing so by receiving such a great accolade.

Carbon has offices in Edinburgh, Perth, Aberdeen and Glasgow. For more information please contact Managing Director Gordon Wilson on 0131 220 0000 or by email on
