BUSINESS is booming for a team of Scarborough financial advisers as the firm moves to new offices while scooping a top award.

Peace of Mind Financial Solutions has set up shop in Falsgrave Road after moving from its upstairs offices in St Nicholas Street.

Since being set up in August 2007 the business has operated from Alma Square and St Nicholas Street, but is now looking to settle in Falsgrave Road, where it has taken over the former studio of Ann Anderson Photography.

Managing director Nigel Wood said: “Business is really growing for us, and this is a big property with lots of scope to expand.

“We also wanted a shop front, and here we have one in a terrific location. Footfall is good, there is parking out front, and we are right next to the traffic lights so when people are stuck in queues they will look around and see we are here.”

Alongside the move Peace of Mind Financial Solutions is celebrating a top award.

At a recent Institute of Financial Advisors convention the firm was given an award from its network Personal Touch Financial Services, for recording the biggest growth across the network’s 250 businesses.

John Ruddick, director of ISA Services for Personal Touch Financial Services said: “Peace of Mind have bucked the trend in a difficult economic environment. While many firms in the financial sector have struggled, Peace of Mind have grown their business at a pace by offering a quality advice service on an extensive range of investment, pension and insurance products. They are one of the strongest driving forces in our financial services community.”

Mr Wood added: “When we first set up we were just mortgages and related products. Since then we have built in private health care and equity release in to the business.”
