Redmayne Bentley celebrates unprecedented success at national financial awards

Towards the end of an extraordinary year for markets, Redmayne Bentley is celebrating an unprecedented achievement after receiving four awards at the Investors Chronicle/Financial Times (IC/FT) Investment and Wealth Management Awards.
The investment management and stockbroking firm has received awards in three categories:
  • Best Full Service Stockbroker
  • Best Stockbroker for Customer Service
  • Best Self Select ISA
In addition, Redmayne Bentley has been named overall Stockbroker of the Year 2018.

The awards, which identify and reward the very best products and financial service providers in the industry, were made possible thanks to investors’ votes.

While Redmayne Bentley has consistently received recognition at the IC/FT Awards, it is the first time the firm has picked up four in one ceremony, and it received the highest number of awards of any organisation on the night.

Speaking after the award ceremony at the Glaziers Hall in London last night, David Loudon, Joint Chief Executive, said: “This has been an incredible achievement and I, on behalf of Redmayne Bentley, would like to thank investors who voted for us to receive these important awards. I also thank all my colleagues for their daily efforts to provide outstanding service. Clients remain our main focus as they have been since our beginnings over 140 years ago.

“In an industry where more online investment platforms are coming onto the market, this award demonstrates that investors genuinely value personal service, based on long-term relationships with clients, often across generations.

“For example, among the recent issues over which clients have contacted Redmayne Bentley are the turbulence and volatility in equity markets. In response, the firm’s investment managers have reiterated that focus remains on structuring investment portfolios to be all-weather, remaining invested for the longer term. Our investment managers provide a personal, tailored and flexible approach to managing their clients’ investments, using their expertise across all asset classes to tailor the portfolio and service to each specific client, and are not constrained by in-house ‘buy’ lists.

David added: “In addition to our award-winning investment management services, Redmayne Bentley remains as proud of its traditional stockbroking services as ever. The service is particularly suited to experienced investors or those looking for a high quality personal service with the ability to have an ongoing relationship with a qualified and experienced stockbroker.

“It has been a remarkable year for us. Over the past 12 months we have embarked on a new phase in our history with a rebrand to reflect the forward-looking investment management and stockbroking firm we have become. While it is significantly different from our previous visual identity, it has been well received and provides continuity to our values of professionalism, expertise, integrity and high-quality customer service.”

Redmayne Bentley has received Best Full Service Stockbroker at the IC/FT Awards in four of the last five years, and Best Stockbroker for Customer Service in 2016. It is also the second time this year the organisation has been recognised for its Stocks and Shares ISA, having been named Best ISA Provider at the City of London Wealth Management Awards in March this year.

David said: “The fact we have been consistently voted to receive awards at the IC/FT Awards is testament to the loyalty shown by our clients. We are never complacent about this and aim always to place clients at the centre of everything we do.”

About to celebrate its 143rd year, Redmayne Bentley provides bespoke investment management, as well as execution-only and advisory stockbroking, ISAs and SIPPs and has deep experience of working with private clients, trusts and charities.
