We are very proud that over the last few years we have won numerous industry awards, demonstrating the quality of our service to our advisers.
Our most recent accolade was in February 2019 where it was announced Tenet had been awarded as the 'Best Network' by Professional Adviser, and in November 2018 we were ranked as the 'No. 1 Financial Adviser' by FT Adviser. What's more in 2018 we were awarded 'Best Network' from Money Marketing for the third time in four years.
Tenet is a multi-award-winning financial adviser support group, providing an extensive range of services to hundreds of appointed representative and directly authorised financial adviser firms across the UK. We have over a quarter of a century's worth of experience, £30m net assets, significant cash reserves and three institutional shareholders (Aviva, Standard Life Aberdeen & Aegon), so we are robust and here for the long-term.
Our position within the industry means we have the influence to help shape the way it develops, and our established infrastructure and expert resources allow us to adapt to environmental changes along the way. Our close relationship with the Financial Conduct Authority, as well as being on the board of key financial services organisations such as APFA and AMI, ensures we are well informed of climate changes and are able to have appropriate building blocks in place to support advisers well into the future.
We also offer a wide range of services including:
- Quality compliance solutions
- Industry-leading whole of market research and technical expertise
- Events and training, providing structured CPD
- Business development solutions, such as paraplanning and marketing
- Professional Indemnity Insurance through our own captive insurance company
However, it's not just what we do; it's how we do it that stands us out from the crowd
By joining Tenet, we will treat you as an individual, as a partner, providing choices and enabling you to run your business in a way which is right for you and your clients. Independent or restricted (or even a hybrid of both); appointed representative or directly authorised; investment or non-investment; at Tenet, it's YOUR choice. Whichever route you follow, you will have a team of over 250 people who will strive to add value and income to your business.
The story started in the 1980s, but it was in 1992 when things really started to take shape when the M&E Network was launched. Designed with the needs of financial advisers in mind, M&E Network connected advisers and provided expert support and tailored services at a time when they needed it the most due to new regulation enforcing them to choose whether to be tied or independent.
The Group continued to be successful and, in 1999, it acquired Interdependence Ltd (a company with a similar offering to M&E) and launched the Tenet Group. Since then, Tenet has continued to grow, acquire other businesses and build more services, all designed to provide an even better service to advisers - whatever their status or needs. From compliance and training, to product research and business development support - all within an ever-changing and highly-regulated financial services market.
As the business grew, Tenet retained its independence, rejecting the chance to float on the stock market, in order that it could continue to focus on providing a first class service to advisers. It's also financially robust, with major financial backing from Aviva, Standard Life Aberdeen and Aegon.
Today, Tenet has the same values, individuality and objectives as it did all those years ago - to provide an unrivalled choice and expertise that adds value and income to an adviser's business. So whether you choose TenetConnect, TenetLime, TenetSelect or Aspire, you can rest assured that you will have a partner for prosperity.
