Insurance broker in line for national award

An insurance broker from Rothwell is in line for another high-profile national award.

Robyn Allen, of Robyn Allen Solutions Ltd which specialises in personal protection insurance, has been named a finalist in the Woman of the Year – Protection Advice category at the national Women In Financial Advice Awards.

The prestigious awards, hosted by top industry publications Professional Adviser and Retirement Planner, celebrate the achievements of trailblazing women working within the financial services sector.

This latest accolade follows success for Robyn at last year’s regional and National SME Business Awards where she won silver awards for Young Entrepreneur of the Year and Mentor of the Year.
Robyn said:

“I’m thrilled to be a finalist because despite the fact women have made great strides in the financial services industry we’re still very much the minority. I’m particularly pleased because this award focuses on Protection Advice so it recognises I’m a specialist in this area.

“I hope the judges have been impressed by my passion and enthusiasm for our industry.

“I’m not afraid to be myself. I have a mohawk and I don’t look like your typical financial services person.

“We set ourselves apart with the advice and support we offer because we genuinely care about our clients and I’ve also worked hard to support others though my mentoring work.”

Being named a finalist is further great news for Robyn who has been working hard throughout the Covid-19 lockdown to support her clients and the wider community. Her regular videos on social media have proved very popular and she has sent postcards to clients to reach out to them.

Robyn explained:

“We acted quickly to make sure our clients knew we were still there for them. Our company is strong and we’re continuing to support our existing and new clients so they receive the best advice.”

Robyn is also a non executive director and trustee with several organisations, volunteers at her local college to deliver money skills workshops, mentors new start-up businesses in her own time and is a trained mentor to teenagers.

The winners of the Women In Financial Advice Awards will be announced on 8 October 2020.
