A FINANCIAL planning firm in Bromsgrove is in line for a prestigious national award.

Redbourne Wealth Management has been nominated as Investment Advisor of the Year as part of the Moneyfacts 2014 Awards, competing alongside most of the UKs well known financial providers.

Redbourne's senior financial planner Chris Payton, said: "We've been fortunate enough to win a number of major awards lately, including one run by the Financial Times. We were named one of the top 100 movers and shakers in financial planning in the country last year and we're thrilled to be going head to head with some big league players."

The Isidore Road-based firm supplies personal finance data to the government and the Bank of England, and is the research organisation behind the Best Buy columns in the FT, the Guardian and the Daily Mail.

The awards will be presented in London this September.
