RHG – Sponsors of the Medium Business of the Year Award
Richmond House Group, (RHG) are the region’s premier independent financial advisors, investment managers and employee benefit consultants. Based inStevenagefor almost 50 years, we have built a reputation based on professionalism and trust with local business, their owners and employees. Here are just a couple of typical comments from satisfied clients:
“We appointed RHG in 2009 to handle our employee pension arrangements and associated risk benefits and they have provided an exemplary service to us” Bahlsen
“Emma, I would like to thank you, Chris and Darren for your patience and the help you gave me in sorting out and bringing to a satisfactory conclusion my last shares transaction. They were indeed actions beyond the call of duty and I’m very grateful…. you make a superb team and RHG are lucky to have you. Please show this e mail to your boss, it may prompt him to increase your Xmas bonus!!!!” Cyril Gibbins
Unlike the stereotypical financial advisory firm, we do not base our business on a strong sales ethos. Service and confidence are our watchwords which are evidenced by the fact that 70% of our income is annual repeat fees. Director, John Maynard said: “Our investment management service is unique among provincial advisors. Even the big city firms do not offer the service and regular communication we provide. So much so that other IFAs are beginning to appoint us to manage their clients’ investments for them. Our team actively manages more than £150m of SIPP, group pension, ISA and personal investments.” Employee benefits remains at the heart of our business and big changes are afoot. Head of Employee Benefits Ian Jenkins said: “The government has passed legislation compelling ALL employers to automatically enrol ALL their employees into a pension scheme, starting 2012. Employers will be required to pay 3% of salary into the employees’ plan. However, the monitoring and audit programme is such that administration and record keeping could be the bigger worry. We are engaging with employers now to plan a gradual transition to ease the cost burden.”
Stevenage is a great business location and Hertfordshire is fortunate in having such a thriving economy.
Managing Director Paul Beasley said: “We want Hertfordshire to remain ahead of the curve and provide the business success that creates wealth for all. With success comes responsibility and we actively support our local charity, Stevenage Community Trust, which does some excellent work locally.”
We are delighted to be a sponsor once again of the Hertfordshire Business Awards and congratulate Archant on organising the county’s premier business event. The awards are a great showcase for business and we would urge as many businesses as possible to enter. We very much look forward to seeing you all at the gala dinner.”
