A vibrant wealth management firm has entered the small business category in the Business Matters Awards.

Juno Wealth Management is a ‘boutique’ chartered firm of Independent Financial Advisers delivering financial planning services to both private clients and companies throughout the circulation area of The West Sussex County Times, Crawley Observer and Mid Sussex Times.

The company is owned and run by business owners, Derek and Tracey Evans.

Mr Evans said: “Our business was founded in 2006, trading under the name of Ashley Law, based in Crawley. We quickly established a firm business foundatio, supported by a very loyal bank of clients. In 2012 we confirmed our long term commitment to Sussex when we purchased our own commercial premises in Bolney. This was a key decision for us, choosing to use our own pension savings to secure our premises, which confirms our long term commitment to serving the Sussex and surrounding communities.However, it became clear that the name Ashley Law had become too restrictive, so in 2013 we set about re-branding our business. This was a major commitment on our part both in terms of time and cost.

“We successfully launched our Juno Wealth Management brand in September 2013 with a new logo, website and consistency across all our communications, including our social media channels.

In January last year, the company achieved chartered status - one of only just over 650 chartered firms of financial planners through the Chartered Insurance Institute in the UK as at January 2015.

The Stairbridge Lane-based firm employs four people and is going from strength to strength.Mr Evans said: “Overall we deliver on our promises, providing truly outstanding high quality and inspirational financial planning services to the Sussex community and intend to do so for many years to come.”
