Helm Godfrey’s player among the UK Top 200

Mr Player said he was honoured to have been recognised by his client, stating that referrals are an “important part” of financial advice, and “it is always nice to begin a relationship with a new client, based on the recommendation of a satisfied customer.”

He added: “Much has changed in the advice sector since I started my career almost 14 years ago, particularly in relation to regulations and the sophistication of the products and services available.

“However, what has remained - and will always remain - constant is the need to provide professional and impartial advice that is in the best interests of clients. That is what I have always strived to do and will always continue to do.”
