Fairstone, the full-service wealth management house, has been recognised as receiving the most positive ratings of any financial planning firm in the latest VouchedFor Guide.

The accolade comes as VouchedFor published its 2020 Guide to the UK’s top-rated Financial Advisers in both The Times and Telegraph.

The Guide is widely recognised as a sector standard of quality, with more checks that any other adviser directory. Two million consumers are using VouchedFor each year to find and check advisers.

Fairstone has a phenomenal presence in the 2020 guide, with 53 Fairstone advisers qualifying, collectively notching up 2,833 reviews with an average rating of 4.9 out of 5. This stellar presence means Fairstone has the highest number of positive ratings of any wealth management firm on VouchedFor.

Fairstone CEO Lee Hartley said he was delighted with the accolade, which endorses the firm’s ethos of putting clients at the heart of everything.

He said: “Reviews are an increasingly important part of any consumer decision and this guide is widely recognised as being the UK’s largest celebration of great financial advice.

“It makes clear the value of professional financial planning and shines a light on the advisers who are consistently doing an excellent job for their clients, as decided by the clients themselves.

“Client-led guides such as these give exceptional advisers the recognition they deserve while championing transparency to help build public confidence and trust in great financial advice.”

This latest accolade follows on from Fairstone’s excellent endorsement on Trustpilot, where it is ranked the number one wealth management firm, with a client satisfaction score of 98%.

VouchedFor use over 120,000 verified client reviews and extensive adviser checks to provide powerful independent validation of the great work many advisers are doing for their clients.

MD of VouchedFor, Alex Whitson said: "The case for great financial advice is clear and we need more companies to follow Fairstone's example and invite clients to review their adviser.

“This shows the UK public that the advice profession is open to scrutiny and brings to light the brilliant outcomes that financial advisers are delivering for their clients every day.

“In Fairstone's case, the firm's commitment to high standards is evidenced in its average 4.9 out of 5 rating based on 2,833 all-time VouchedFor reviews.”
