Niamh Prendergast

This year’s wealth manager of the year provided a plethora of examples and results that ticked all the criteria points for this category. She is a highly regarded wealth manager who has made an outstanding contribution to the financial well-being of her clients and is very skilled in ‘translating’ complex financial concepts. She has been actively involved with the organisation’s media campaigns which is focused on improving financial literacy. Her work on the internal change programmes, in particular with the recruitment and mentoring programmes, serve to improve inclusion significantly. She supports the graduate recruitment process and is a mentor to young women graduates, a good few of whom have since taken on senior roles in the company. Colleagues consider her to be a role model in every way, personally and professionally. Judges congratulate her for being an all-rounded individual that is bringing great value and impact to her business and to the industry.
