Argyle Consulting announce record turnover and forecast another strong year ahead
Argyle Consulting Ltd, one of the UK’s leading financial advisory firms, has today announced a record turnover of £3.75 million in 2013 - a 13% increase in the previous year’s figures.
The firm cites the reasons for its impressive growth on its acquisition of Edinburgh Risk Management in May last year and on its 2013 recruitment drive, which saw the company boost its adviser numbers to 14.
Stuart Dunbar, Managing Director, at Argyle Consulting, commented:
"Against a backdrop of difficult economic conditions and significant regulatory changes, I'm delighted with Argyle’s strong business performance, which is testament to the prudent management of our business. We have successfully managed to integrate Edinburgh Risk Management within our business, whilst continuing to grow organically with the recruitment of quality advisers. The year finished on a high with Argyle being awarded Chartered Financial Planner status, reinforcing our commitment to the very highest levels of professionalism for our customers.”
2014 has already got off to a flying start for Argyle, who in January became one of only twelve IFA firms in the UK to receive Gold accreditation from ‘Investors in People’.
Elspeth Quinn, Client Services Manager commented:
“We’re delighted to have received ‘Investors in People’ Gold accreditation, which represents achievement of world class best practice. This award not only puts Argyle within the ranks of the 1% of UK companies that have achieved Investors in People Gold Status, it puts us clearly at the top of the financial advisory profession as one of only two IFA firms in Scotland and one of twelve in the UK, to have received Gold accreditation.
Among the many recent accolades for our performance and success in the financial services market, we are particularly pleased to have received this award. It publicly recognises the value we place on our staff and that we’re operating at the very highest levels of people management practice”.
Argyle remain confident that their business growth will continue in 2014 and see particular opportunities for strong growth in their Employee Benefits division.
Brian Savage, Employee Benefits Director commented:
“Auto-enrolment presents a positive opportunity for Argyle to guide employers through the process of establishing a fully compliant auto-enrolment solution. There are a myriad of options available and we are well placed to add value and provide advice to employers as they go through the decision making process”.
