IT’S A warm welcome to this sponsor which has given its backing to the Best of Health Awards for a second year running.

Firm 8 Wealth Management is once again on-board and is sponsoring the Hospital Doctor of the Year category.

Ian Riggs is chief executive officer of the Whiteley firm.

He said: ‘We are once again proud to sponsor the Hospital Doctor of the Year award.

‘This event is fantastic in recognising those professionals who we may take for granted on a daily basis. Hearing the heartwarming stories to date, we recognise that all nominees are fully deserving of an award and are an inspiration to others.

‘I have been amazed by the unbelievable stories of tireless work, often without thanks, often against the backdrop of personal challenges that all the nominees for the awards have shown.’

Mr Riggs explained what the company is all about.

He said: ‘We are a small business in Whiteley, a principal partner in St James’s Place Wealth Management, and a team of 25 individuals whose role is quite straightforward.

‘We build, grow, protect and preserve the financial health and wellbeing of our clients.

‘We offer a comprehensive range of solutions across every aspect of financial services, from retirement planning, protecting family against financial instability and uncertainty, long-term care advice, tax planning and just about anything you could think of that falls under the term “financial”.’

This year’s awards take place at the Portsmouth Guildhall on Friday, October 9.

Tickets cost £39 per person and include a welcome drink, two-course meal, the prize-giving and a disco. Dietary requirements need to be specified at the time of booking tickets.
