A Cumbrian accountancy firm has been named as the UK's top dynamic firm of the year.

Lamont Pridmore, which has offices in Carlisle, Workington, Whitehaven, Penrith, Kendal, Barrow, Carnforth and Keswick, won the Dynamic Advisory Firm of the Year award at the Annual Advisor Awards for the second year running.

The awards are organised by Worldwide Financial Advisor Awards Magazine and aim to compile a comprehensive guide to the best advisers and firms which have demonstrated consistently high levels of ability and service within the specialised area of expertise.

The firm's financial advice services are provided by its sister company Lamont Pridmore Asset & Wealth Management.

Lamont Pridmore’s chief executive Graham Lamont said: “The fact that our combined services as a practice merit the attention of international award judges speaks volumes about the quality of the advice we deliver.

“This awards guide is sent to more than 500,000 businesses and individuals around the world, so it is fantastic exposure for us as a firm and for the professional service sector in Cumbria as a whole.”

Trevor Iredale, an independent financial adviser at Lamont Pridmore Asset & Wealth Management, added: “Our entire team is really proud of this achievement. We always go out of our way to provide pro-active, easy to understand advice, so it is nice to be recognised for this.”

Lamont Pridmore Asset & Wealth Management offers Life Wealth Plans, which often include advice on pensions, life insurance and investments.
