The Retirement Planner Awards are in their sixth year. Lonsdale Services won the 2017 Outstanding Customer Care award with a case study submitted by Deb Nolan, Lonsdale Wealth Management independent financial adviser in Leeds/Bradford. Deb Nolan has also submitted the case study for this year’s award. In 2017 Deb Nolan advised a member of a money purchase occupational pension scheme that they could be due a financial entitlement in the form of scheme-specific tax-free cash protection. In 2018 Lonsdale Services also won the Retirement Planner Award (RPA) for Best Individual Pension Advice firm in the South East and Anglia. Allan Ross our Lonsdale Wealth Management independent financial adviser in Ware was also ‘highly commended’ in the Estate Planner Adviser category in 2018.
To enter the Outstanding Customer Care award Deb Nolan, independent financial adviser, Leeds/Bradford had to submit a case study. During the year Deb had provided pension advice to a client who was looking to take early retirement and her independent financial advice enabled him to make substantial tax savings during the 2018/19 tax year.
