GLASSES were raised to a firm of independent financial advisers as they celebrated their company turning 10-years-old.

Directors at Waterlooville-based Compass Wealth Management organised a black tie and balldress event in the Queen’s Hotel, Southsea, to mark reaching the milestone.

Guests at the party enjoyed a meal and live entertainment from mind reader and magician Robert Fox and comedian Josh Daniels.

Chris Theakston, who has been a finance executive at the firm for nine years, said: ‘Everyone had a great night – the close-up magician was nothing short of magical.

‘Above all it was nice to know the contribution we make is wholly appreciated. Here’s to the next 10 years.’

The firm, which offers advice and services on all aspects of financial planning including pensions and investments, started in 2001 with one member of staff.

Since then it has grown in strength and survived the recent recession and downturn in the economy.

Neil Dunkley, the company’s managing director, said: ‘We organised the event to thank our staff and their partners for all of the hard work they have put in over the last 10 years.’
