Jack Swan of AAB Wealth has been awarded the Achievers Award by the Insurance Institute of Aberdeen, at their annual dinner.
The award is to recognise and applaud outstanding achievements to rising stars within the local Insurance and Financial Services industry. The prize was introduced to award new entrants into the profession, who have scored the highest marks in entry level qualifications, recognising effort and commitment to personal professional development.
Jack, who joined AAB Wealth’s graduate programme in 2018 after undertaking his RGU placement year within the firm, began his Chartered Insurance Instituate (CII) training last year. In his 2019 exams, Jack achieved the highest regional mark in two exams.
Vikki Venerus, Senior Operations Manager said “We are all so thrilled that Jack’s hard work has been recognised through this award. Jack has made such a big impact on the team and has really proved himself with not only his fantastic exam results, but also his development and contribution within the team. AAB Wealth are committed to training and development opportunities for all of our team members and we are sure Jack’s award will inspire his colleagues and those who join AAB Wealth in the future. Jack’s career has only just begun and we are excited to see what he achieves in the years to come.”
Jack added “I am delighted to have received this award and give thanks to the AAB Wealth team for the support and guidance they continue to give. I look forward to continuing my studies to complete my CII qualifications and ultimately become a Chartered Financial Planner.”
