Portlethen resident Paul Gibson has been named Financial Planner of the Year at a ceremony in London.

Paul, who is based in Banchory, was given the title on October 27, retaining the award he was given in 2015 when he became the first Scot to win the title.

Paul was judged to have demonstrated “high-quality understanding” across numerous disciplines.

He was presented with the top accolade by BBC presenter and former Strictly Come Dancing winner Chris Hollins at the black-tie awards dinner held in Mayfair, London.

Paul commented: “To retain the title for a second year is fantastic news and is a huge endorsement for the type of work we undertake. Having recently set up our own business it is great to bre recognised at such a high levbel in the UK and demonstrates that high quality advice can be offered locally by a boutique firm.”.

Paul is one of the best qualified financial planners in the UK. He is both a Chartered Financial Planner and Fellow of the Personal Finance Society, and a Chartered Wealth Manager and Certified Financial Planner of the Chartered Investment & Securities Institute.
