“We pride ourselves on providing the best service to all of our valuable clients, whether they’re based in the east of England or further afield,” he said.

“We’re constantly striving to improve our offering. I’m so pleased this has been recognised once again on a national level, especially after facing such strong competition against other high-performing firmsn.”

The accolade comes after Matthew Douglas, of Wheatsheaf House in Hadleigh High Street, revealed it was on course to achieve a record year for asset management.

The firm provides savings and investment advice and financial protection guidance to more than 800 families.

Managing director Matthew Pescott Frost, managing director, said: “In more than 20 years of business this company has grown into a successful firm, boasting a fantastic team of individuals who go above and beyond for our clients.

“This award is a testament to their hard work – it most definitely is a team effort. I was very proud to represent them by accepting this award in London, alongside my colleagues Russell and Frank.

“It’s taken sheer perseverance. We do a good job, we’ve got a great legacy team, a young team coming through and we plan to consolidate next year.

“Our youngsters are in their 20s and they’re being primed to take over in around four or five years.

“Independent financial planning is essential. We are genuinely independent – all our shareholders actually work in the business and not many firms can say that.”
