Nation's favourite individual advisers named

The print version of the guide, distributed nationally in The Times, featured a list of financial advisers and mortgage advisers who qualified as ‘Top Rated’ by members of the public using the VouchedFor platform.

In total, 1,172 advisers from 737 different companies were included in the guide.

VouchedFor's list of advisers is based on reviews while FTAdviser's Top 100 Financial Advisers list uses data from our research partner Strategic Insight, formerly known as Matrix Data.

Last year marked a new dawn for FTAdviser's Top 100 Financial Advisers list as significant changes were made to the methodology used to rank businesses and a greater volume of data was received from Strategic Insight about these companies.

As a result, Tenet claimed the top spot this year on FTAdviser's list due to a combination of their assets under management, the number of highly qualified individuals at the business, and net retail fund sales.
