The Mission of IN Partnership is to deliver quality support services to IFAs and Mortgage Advisers to enable them to meet the regulatory requirements of the FCA and to provide clients with a professional service over the whole range of their financial needs.
Such support will be either through network membership for independent businesses or as consultants with our National IFA practice, according to choice, and will seek to encourage best business practice and profitability through business development initiatives and added-value services.
We are fully committed to Treating Customers Fairly and this principle has been fully embedded in the culture of our network and of our national IFA firm.
The Mission will be delivered in a way that is totally transparent, thereby underpinning our commitment to integrity in all our dealings, both with member IFAs, Mortgage Advisers and, ultimately, the general public.
Stanley Lovell - Group Chairman
IN Partnership was formed in the year 2000 and has distinguished itself as being one the few networks, or nationals, that are consistently profitable and enjoy steady organic growth.
We are totally independent of any insurance company or outside investor, unlike many of our competitors. We are well-capitalised and more than meet the stringent capital adequacy requirements of the FCA, having substantial reserves for investment in infrastructure and IT ? of crucial importance to our members to ensure cost-effectiveness across the business.
Many of our members, as well as staff, are also shareholders in the Group.
With nearly 500 IFAs and Mortgage Advisers in membership and an annual turnover in excess of £30million and funds under influence of over £3 billion, IN Partnership is one of the most successful of all the service providers to IFAs and Mortgage Advisers.
Our success has been underscored by several prestigious awards ? we reached the Sunday Times Fast Track list of Britain?s 100 fastest growing companies in 2006, sponsored by Virgin, and we also won the award for the most successful company in the South of England, by Decision Business Magazine, sponsored by the Royal Bank of Scotland.
A third prize has come our way in that we were voted finalists to the short list of the top 10 UK companies in the national ?Growth Strategy of the Year Award?, sponsored by 3i?s.
All of these awards were made independently and were the result of rigorous research by the organisations concerned.
