AN INDEPENDENT financial adviser is vying a pair of awards.

Helen Hunter, who works at the Basingstoke office, in Basing View, of Chase De Vere, has been shortlisted for two awards at the Women in Financial Advice Awards 2019.

Helen, who has been an adviser at Chase de Vere since October 2010, has been shortlisted in the Financial Adviser of the Year for the South East and the Woman of the Year in Retirement Planning categories.

The winners will be announced at a black tie award ceremony at the Hilton Bankside Hotel in London on Wednesday, 3 July.

Stephen Kavanagh, chief executive of Chase de Vere, said: “I am delighted that Helen has been shortlisted as a finalist. This is a fitting recognition for the excellent financial advice and service which she provides to her clients in and around Basingstoke.

“The financial advice industry is still very male-dominated and so it’s great that these awards help to showcase some of the best female financial professionals. Helen is a fantastic example of this and we will continue to do our best to support talented women, which will also have the result of helping to improve diversity within our industry.”
