We are 30!
This year sees the 30th anniversary of BLIFA.
In November 1989, it was an innovative move by the solicitors to launch a separate financial services department. The synergy between legal and financial advice, and providing both services under one roof, has proven to be an excellent decision. We have seen both the team and diversification of the team grow considerably.
We believe in internal training and development of our employees, which is invaluable not only to us, but to our clients, as we believe firmly in continuity of advice to our clients; our trainees adopt the same philosophies as the senior advisers within the team.
We may have seen a huge amount of change in the last 30 years in terms of technology and regulation; however, what has not changed is the service to our clients. We believe in providing a professional and personal service, which is borne out by the number of clients we are advising 30 years on. In many cases we don’t just advise them, but also their children and grandchildren.
I am very proud of the achievements of the team and look forward to continuing working with you all and your families in the future. Whilst I may not be working in 2049, the foundations have been built and other team members will be providing financial advice for another 30 years!
