Collins Stewart Wealth Management (CSWM) has received two important industry awards for its Discretionary Portfolio Management and Stockbroking services.

CSWM was named Best Discretionary Service at the Daily Telegraph Wealth Management Awards, at a ceremony at the Mansion House. This follows success in the same category last year and in 2007, meaning CSWM have triumphed in three of the four years since these awards were launched.

This was followed by being named Advisory Stockbroker of the Year at the annual Financial Times & Investors Chronicle Investment Awards dinner – for the third year in a row.

Neil Darke, Head of Collins Stewart Wealth Management; said:

“To win two awards in a week is very satisfying, but to win both awards in consecutive years is a tremendous achievement, of which we are very proud. We are particularly pleased to win these awards because they are decided by the most important group of voters – our clients.

“These two awards are testament to the broad range of services that we offer our clients and our unstinting focus on delivering a quality investment proposition without compromising the high level of service we aim to provide our clients.”
