Nice gnawing you Wabbit! It’s the MRM (Thursday) Blog
You may have noticed that a new and high quality operator joined the MRM team this week, but I’m afraid to say that his contract was just a temporary one. Today we wave goodbye to Wabbit, our cuddly Easter Bunny who hopped his way around London delivering a bury of chocolate bunnies to our lovely clients and some very lucky #WheresWabbit competition winners. Congratulations to @hollyblack_ltc, @TheParaplanner, @RussHaworth and @nucleuswrap, and a big thanks to everyone who joined in the fun and helped donate to RNIB, our deserving charity of the year. We feel thoroughly revved up for the Easter bank holidays, and the whole team hopes that Wabbit will be able to visit us again next year.
Also this week, we held our latest editorial meeting for our ‘Young Money’ research project. It’s too soon to let you in on the findings just yet, but we have been astounded by some of the stats from our ICM survey into young people’s financial aspirations. It’s an area we feel has been under-researched, and if you would like to get involved in the debate about our upcoming report we’d love to hear from you.
In client news, PMS has announced the appointment of Manchester Building Society to its lender panel, which boosts the PMS panel to 49 lenders and will give advisers access to a range of competitive services. Barclays has also announced that the IFSLBarclays Radar fund is now available on the Standard Life platform. Elsewhere, Hearthstone Investments has been announced as the latest sponsor of Unbiased.co.uk, and if you are interested in the debate around modern banking services that encourage long-term saving, we recommend you start off this bank holiday weekend with a read of the latest blog by Sean Oldfield, CEO at Castle Trust.
Whether you will be shovelling snow in Scotland or sunning it in Southampton, we hope you have a good one. See you on Tuesday!
