I am nominated for the young retirement planner of the year award. The qualification to be classified as "young" is 30 and under, which I only just sneak into!
While I am not a winner on the day, it is a good experience to be part of and I am delighted to have been shortlisted.
My firm is a business with more than 30 years’ history and we are only just learning how to shout about ourselves. While checking emails I also learn that we have been shortlisted for financial adviser of the year in the Moneyfacts awards. Another award ceremony to consider attending.
Chris Ball is a financial planner at Boolers, based in Leicester
