A TOP Stourbridge business woman has secured a prestigious award for her ‘outstanding’ financial advice work.

Rachel Jefferson, who works for town centre firm Prosperity Wealth, took home the Professional of the Year title at the 2016 Wolverhampton Law Society Dinner earlier this month.

The awards, which saw solicitors, accountants, estate agents, bankers and financial advisors vying for the top prize, were chosen by an independent panel of leading names in business.

Judges said they were impressed with Rachel’s work for the high-flying firm.

Rachel, who joined the St John’s Road firm in June last year, said: “I am delighted to have won the award and pleased that hard work is recognised.

“I am part of a team at Prosperity Wealth that believes very strongly in offering the very best private personal financial advice and building a trusted local client base. That is something that clearly caught the judges’ attention.”

After starting out at Sedgwick Noble Lowndes in Birmingham back in 1996, highly experienced Rachel has also worked with Torquil Clark in Wolverhampton and is one of only around 10 per cent of advisers across the country to have Chartered Financial Planner status which is widely accepted as the gold standard of the industry.
