International Adviser, a leading publication for the financial services sector, has announced its Top 100 list of Influential Advisers, and we are delighted to feature twice. Jeremy Woodley, our MD and Chairman, and David Pugh, our Sales and Marketing Director, are both noted in the list which recognises the ‘movers and shakers’ who help drive excellence within financial services to make a lasting impact.
Jeremy’s key area of influence is for his work in creating The Fry Group’s own fund management joint venture, which now forms the cornerstone of our Investment Service. He is also recognised for his focus on regulation and developing greater levels of professionalism across all of our staff teams. Jeremy has been a champion in creating a solid culture of professional development which led to The Fry Group being awarded the status of a chartered financial planning firm in 2013.
David, who recently relocated from our Singapore office back to the UK, is noted for his work in raising the standard of financial planning advice in Singapore. The area has historically been known for bad practice and questionable firms with cold calling, hidden commission and exit penalties used unrelentingly. David’s focus as our Singapore Manager helped develop The Fry Group’s reputation in the region as an advocate of transparent, high-quality financial advice. David shared his thoughts on being including saying: “My dad taught me early on the virtues of hard work, perseverance and doing the right thing. These wise words have served me well in my career and I’m sure helped contribute to me making the list.”
