Carbon Gold Standard AwardEdinburgh based Carbon Financial Partners have struck gold.

For the fifth year in succession the business has been awarded the prestigious Gold Standard Award for independent financial advice.

Managing director Gordon Wilson received the award in a ceremony at the House of Commons from Sir David Amess MP.

Mr Wilson said: “I am immensely proud of this achievement. To win the Gold Standard we have to demonstrate strength in almost every area of our business; we have to show that we have robust systems and processes in place, impeccable professional and ethical standards, a full commitment to furthering trust and innovation in our industry, and that we invest in our staff.

“It’s a tremendous boost for the team. We now head towards 2018 knowing that we have once again been recognised as one of the very best financial planning businesses in the UK.”

The Manor Place business now employs more than 40 staff across Scotland and Carbon has recently opened an office in London.
