Outstanding Achievement Award
WINNER: OLLIE SMITH, NEW MODEL ADVISER
It’s not unusual for outstanding contribution or lifetime achievement awards to focus on individuals approaching the end of a successful career.
The winner of this year’s Headlinemoney Outstanding Achievement award, however, is still a young man with the majority of his career left in front of him, rather than behind, him. Someone whose initiatives over the last year have helped to shine a spotlight on the increasingly important issue of mental health in the financial services workplace. From his contributions via blog entries and podcasts, and even taking a discussion about mental health issues on the road and encouraging those in the industry to share their experiences, we’re delighted to recognise New Model Adviser’s Ollie Smith for his services to this extremely important subject.

Schroders Personal Wealth is a joint venture between Lloyds Banking Group and Schroders – two of the UK’s largest names in banking and asset management.
We were created to help more people across the UK benefit from financial advice. We have the advantage of solid foundations and a strong heritage. But we take a fresh, transparent and personal approach to financial planning.
We aim to provide clients with clarity and transparency in everything we do. This includes using technology to explain how long-term financial planning can add value to people’s lives; to give people access to information about their financial wellbeing; and to communicate with their adviser when it's convenient for the client. Our heritage may be 400 years old, but our approach is built for the future.
