AWARD winning county firm McCarthy Taylor is celebrating its 20th anniversary this year.

McCarthy Taylor was founded in 1998 and has gone on to become one of the top leading independent financial advice firms in the country.

Over the years McCarthy Taylor has expanded, opening offices in Worcester and Evesham, and in 2012 it was awarded chartered status.

The firm’s technical ability and outstanding service received national recognition with numerous awards, including several from Moneyfacts, while also being named in the Top 100 UK advice firms for the last five years running.

The firm is currently planning to host a series of events to celebrate the 20th anniversary, and continuing its fundraising efforts for the Cystic Fibrosis Trust, the company’s long term charity of choice.

McCarthy Taylor’s 20th anniversary also saw the firm’s compliance officer Abigail Clinton appointed as a director.

Chief executive Paul Taylor said: “I’ve always been passionate about growing and developing the team and I’m especially proud that women represent at least 50 per cent of both McCarthy Taylor’s management team and board of directors.”
