Vicky Pearce, founding director of Manchester-based B-Compliant, has made the finals of the Women in Financial Advice Awards for the third consecutive year.
Financial compliance specialist, Vicky, is shortlisted in the ‘Woman of the Year – Adviser Support Services’ category at the national industry awards.
Winners will be announced on July 6 at a ceremony held in London, which will celebrate the achievements of women who are helping to inspire others to pursue a career in financial services.
Vicky said: “For a long time, our profession was male dominated and although this is changing, I have experienced first-hand the obstacles women in financial services face. It is, therefore, important to recognise those who are working hard to alter perceptions and attitudes and I am proud to be included among them. I have proved you can succeed in the sector, regardless of your background or gender and I am now passing on these positive messages to the next generation.”
B-Compliant was launched four years ago and focuses specifically on providing support services to small and medium-sized businesses registered with the Financial Conduct Authority. Since its inception, the team has expanded rapidly and helps clients across the UK meet their regulatory obligations. It was recently shortlisted in the ‘Best Support Services for Advisers’ category at this year’s Professional Adviser Awards.
