Towry is delighted to sponsor the Accountancy Age Tax Team of Year Award 2012. This award recognises the achievements of tax teams operating within established accountancy firms as well as smaller boutique tax advisers.
Towry aims to provide excellence in the provision of financial advice and investment management services to private individuals. We employ over 650 people in more than 18 offices across the United Kingdom.
The services we provide complement those provided by professional services firms. We work alongside a number of the pre-eminent firms of accountants, as there are many similarities in the way we work. These include a focus on putting the client first, highly qualified advisers delivering professional advice and a transparent fee-based charging structure. We work together with professional practices for the mutual benefits of our clients.
Towry has attained corporate Chartered Financial Planner status and all of our advisers are at this level or work toward it.
Towry is privately owned - the principal shareholders are Palamon Capital Partners, one of Europe's leading private equity firms, and Towry employees.
Our vision is to become the UK's leading provider of Wealth Advice. By sponsoring this award we are pleased to help recognise accountancy firms with a similar professional ethos to our own.
