AIR Group has announced the categories for its inaugural AIR Awards which will take place on the 4 June following its National Later Life Adviser Conference.
The awards are being held in Leicester and will recognise the achievements of both advisers and providers/lenders in the later life space.
Three award categories are open to adviser votes and nominations, which include Lender of the Year, Provider of the Year and Lender of the Year (non-equity release).
Danielle Wilson, head of marketing at AIR Group, said: “Today we start the quest for our inaugural AIR Awards winners, from the best providers and lenders in the marketplace, to the firms that use the services we offer within the group.
“These award categories have been designed to recognise the very best our market has to offer, and we would urge advisers to make their voice known via votes and nominations to ensure we get the most deserving winners.
“Our awards will also give us a chance to reward the very best advisory practitioners, from our newest member firms to those who have supported us from day one.
“It promises to be an excellent night, following a full day at the Adviser Conference – we hope that all later life stakeholders will be able to join us to celebrate this highly important and growing sector.”
A further eight awards will be given out, all of which will be decided internally by teams within AIR Group.
The categories include the CEO’s Adviser of the Year and AIR Mortgage Club Adviser of the Year.
The ‘Tech Talker’ Award will be given to the member the group feel provides the most feedback to its AIR Sourcing system and The Diamond Award will be presented to the member who has given 10-plus years support to AIR Group.
Furthermore, The Platinum Award will be given to the member who has written the most completions via Air Mortgage Club in the 12 months leading up to the presentation evening.
