The Jensten Finance team has been highly commended in the 2021 Finance Team of the Year Awards, sponsored by Finatal.
Finishing 3rd overall in the UK, they were the only financial services team to feature as a finalist, attracting some 30 nominations from a broad range of staff, shareholders, insurers, advisors, suppliers, and franchisees.
The team’s role extends to providing finance support and client money processing for over 90 independent Coversure’ offices around the UK, as well as integrating acquisitions into the Jensten Group. Accordingly, the team play a key role in Jensten’s aim to be the natural home for entrepreneurial mid-market and specialist community brokers.
The judges summarised the team’s achievements: “the amount of effort the finance team at Jensten has clearly put in over the past 12 months is extremely impressive.”
Ed Hannan, Jensten Group Chief Financial Officer added:
“The Finance team has truly lived up to the Jensten ethos – together we achieve more. Finance functions are often the unsung heroes of an organisation, so I am delighted and grateful that my team has been recognised by the stakeholders who made nominations and by the judges who commended their efforts.
I’m convinced that central support functions like our fantastic Finance team play a critical part in Jensten’s performance and in attracting high quality acquisitions to the group. We are building a strong track record of organic growth, and the 4 acquisitions we’ve completed in the last 12 months demonstrate that others see Jensten as a great team to work with.”
