Editor's letter - Only a week left to vote for COVER awards

clock

Good afternoon readers,

As editor, it's about that time of year when I nag you a bit.

The deadline to enter the 2011 Cover Excellence Awards is now only one week away, so I really hope you will vote for your favourite providers and, perhaps, even for yourselves, before it's too late.

COVER wants to reward a good job in the provider sector so these awards are voted for by you, the intermediary, who knows best. After all, you want the best providers to win, don't you?

I have never met an IFA that didn't hold strong views on one or two providers, well now is the time to turn opinion to action. It only takes a couple of minutes and giving credit where credit is due is only fair after a year's sterling service.

In addition, if you think you've had a great year, why not enter your firm in one of the intermediary categories? Your chance of recognition may be greater than you think.

Just click on the links,

Thanks,
Paul Robertson

Editor, COVER
