Aberdeenshire financial advisory firm hails record year and push into England

An Aberdeenshire financial advisory firm has reported a record year and a push south of the Border.

Phil Anderson Financial Services said turnover hit £1.33 million in 2021, a 20 per cent increase from the year before and its best financial performance since launching in 2010.

Despite the challenges the economy has seen over the last two years, the firm saw an increase in clients across each area of its service offering, in particular an increase in pension enquiries during 2021.

Company founder and managing director Phil Anderson said: “I am beyond thrilled that last year saw us experience our best year yet which is a testament to the committed and talented team we have.
