Winners True Bearing Chartered Financial Planners at The North West Chamber of Commerce BIBAs

True Bearing, Financial Advisers, based in Chorley, walked away with two awards on Friday 16 September at the prestigious BIBAs.

Following a gruelling application and interview process and fighting off very tough competition, the firm took home the awards for: Professional Practice of the Year and Excellence in Corporate Social Responsibility.

The awards are a high accolade for elite Lancashire businesses and winning not one but two categories is one of the major highlights of the year for the firm.

Hailed as ‘the one they all want to win’, BIBA stands for Be Inspired Business Awards and the event is organised by the North West Chamber of Commerce. The awards recognise and honour the breadth of business achievement in Lancashire in all its variety.

As a firm of highly qualified independent financial advisers, the business continually strives to offer a professional yet personal financial planning service alongside the work they do within the local community. Winning the two awards is a true reflection of just where this company is heading.

Chairman, George Critchley, said: “The company values do not just tick a box, they are lived and breathed by the whole business, and they are there to support the employees and to help our clients make decisions. We are certainly on an exciting journey.

“These awards are a fantastic win for our company; I am really pleased for the whole team. All our employees show great effort, enthusiasm, engagement, belief and most of all trust, in our firm. The directors were able to wow the judges and demonstrate why we excel in all areas across the business and how we go above and beyond that of a typical IFA firm.”

The wins are a culmination to a series of successes this year, including a Red Rose Award for ‘Financial Firm of the Year’ in March.
