A DORCHESTER firm is celebrating again after scooping its fourth industry award in less than a year.

Accountants and financial planners Old Mill was named the best small adviser at the Financial Adviser and Pensions Awards in London.

It beat off competition from around 20 other firms shortlisted for the accolade after judging by industry experts.

Partner Simon Cole, who was among those representing the firm at the ceremony, said: “The Financial Adviser Life and Pensions Awards are one of the hardest fought in the industry, so we are thoroughly delighted with this award.

“The entrants for this title really are the cream of the crop so the win really is testament to the ongoing hard work undertaken by Old Mill team throughout the year.”

Fellow partner Kevin Whitmarsh added: “At Old Mill we work tirelessly to ensure we deliver the highest possible standard of advice by always making sure the client is at the heart of everything we do.

“So it is really encouraging for us that our client-centred approach is being recognized and rewarded, firstly with the Professional Adviser award in February and now this accolade from Financial Adviser.

“We will continue our commitment to delivering highly professional services.”
