Reeves Independent ranked as one of the Top 100 Financial Advisers in the country at the prestigious Financial Times Adviser Top 100 Financial Adviser awards
Being included in the FT Top 100 Advisers list is a significant achievement for Reeves Independent, as a smaller, niche firm compared to many others in the listing. We now rank in the top 0.5% of advice firms and 9th in the UK for less than six advisers. This also makes Reeves Independent the top firm in the North East for six or fewer advisers - a superb achievement given that there are 17,000 firms throughout the country and more than 30,000 advisers. Reeves Independent have invested significant resource into staff training and support to improve knowledge, qualifications and team capability over recent years. We are delighted that this is reflected in the inclusion of Reeves within the FT rankings.
In the past, the FT Top 100 listing was based on turnover. This year they expanded the criteria to include the total number of advisers, growth in AUM (assets under management), staff training, qualifications and client retention amongst others.

These criteria were used to assess key factors that can help investors seeking the best firm to assist them with their finances. As a result, reeves broke into the top 100 IFA’s in the UK for the first time this year.
Reeves Independent now rank in the top 100 are in the company of high-profile businesses like Barclays, St James Place, Brewin Dolphin and Hargreaves Lansdowne.

The award came at a special time as Reeves Independent have recently expanded into the bespoke building, located at 30 High Street, Gosforth. The building is known fondly as the Old Bank, as it was the former Midland Bank and is one of the area’s most prominent commercial properties.
“Expansion into the new building is important as it highlights our commitment to growing the business to be able support clients further. The new office offers a new, more luxurious space to proudly welcome new and existing clients in, to discuss their pension and retirement needs. This will provide enhanced customer experience, a better standard of service and show clients how serious we are.
We have worked incredibly hard to grow the business to where it is today. But we want to continue to grow and offer even better clients service, which is why we continue to expand. The new building marks a time of expansion, a time of growth and offers our commitment to growing our business to match our client’s needs.
Our Top 100 ranking is fantastic, but we won’t rest on our laurels. The new building will play a key role in helping us grow the business further and to offer a better client experience. With this, we can hopefully climb even higher of the FT’s list of top 100 Financial Advisers.” – Nigel Reeves.
