Aviva Best Paraplanner

Martin Green DIP PFS, Chadney Bulgin Chartered Financial Planners

The paraplanning industry continues to go from strength to strength in the wake of the RDR and pension freedoms, and the quality of this year's entries reflects the growing importance of the role within the advice sector. This year's top award goes to Chadney Bulgin's Martin Green, who impressed the judging panel with his paraplanning skills and knowledge, desire to influence change in the profession in the future, and ambition to lead both the industry and his own company. "We are looking for someone with the ambition and drive to take the paraplanning industry forward, and Martin has that in spades," one judge commented.
