Positive Wealth Creation paraplanner wins top industry award

Long-standing Somerset Chamber member, Positive Wealth Creation Ltd, is celebrating success for one of its team at a recent national award ceremony.

Held as part of the Verve Group’s Evolution 2023 Summit in Central London, paraplanner Sioned James beat off fierce competition from rivals at larger national companies to win the Emerging Award. The honour recognises rising stars within financial services.

Sioned began her career in 2018 after completing her degree, with Burnham-on-Sea based Chartered Financial Planners, Positive Wealth Creation Ltd. The award was presented to Sioned at a glittering ceremony by comedian Jamie Sutherland and the Verve Group’s Natalie Bell.

The judges said that Sioned’s continued studying for the Regulated Diploma in Financial Planning during the COVID lockdowns, participating in Positive Wealth Creation Ltd’s ongoing work to give opportunity to University of the West of England finance students, as well as learning British sign language, were all the reasons for success.

Sioned said: “I am so proud and honoured to be chosen as the winner of the Emerging Award. Thank you to the Verve Group an amazing evening. It really does feel incredibly special to have my achievements throughout the years recognised.”

Earlier in the year, Positive Wealth Creation Ltd Director and Chartered Financial Planner, Alex Turco, was featured in the 2023 Top Rated Financial Adviser Guide in The Times, produced in conjunction with VouchedFor, the UK’s leading financial adviser rating website.
