The Financial Adviser Service Awards are returning to their rightful home - the Natural History Museum's spectacular Hintze Hall - and this year's edition is being hosted by satirist Matt Forde.
Forde is one of the country’s most in-demand stand-up comedians, satirists, and host of Dave’s topical political comedy show Unspun with Matt Forde.
He also hosts the chart-topping podcast The Political Party which has featured some of the biggest names in politics from Tony Blair to Nigel Farage.
Forde has also appeared on TV shows such as Mock the Week, Have I Got News for You, Question Time, The Last Leg and Eight out of 10 Cats.
FTAdviser editor Simoney Kyriakou said: "We are excited to be hosting another glitzy Financial Adviser Service Awards at the Natural History Museum this year.
"With the UK having been on such a wild political and financial rollercoaster ride this year, who better to host the awards than one of the brightest and funniest political commentators of our time?
"We are looking forward to having Matt Forde entertain us this year and, of course, to welcoming you at our prestigious event in November."
The Service Awards are now in their 32nd year and continue to highlight the very best in service provision to advisers and their clients from across the financial services industry.
They will be held on Thursday, November 17.
