Notts serviceman turned financial adviser finalist in awards ceremony

A Nottingham-based Chartered Financial Planner has been announced as a finalist in a prestigious national award ceremony.

Nick Onslow, a former Late Entry Army Captain who spent 25 years in the military, is shortlisted in the ‘Role Model of the Year’ category at the British Ex-Forces in Business Awards.

The awards are the largest celebration and recognition of ex-military personnel in the UK workforce, and the employers that support current and former members of the British Armed Forces.

It is dedicated to providing a much-needed platform for promoting the achievements of ex-military who are now excelling in the business world. And Nick is certainly doing just that!

Mr Onslow is now a Chartered Financial Planner and member of the Senior Leadership Team at The RU Group, a group of independent, personal and corporate financial advisers headquartered in Nottingham.

Putting the skills he learned in the military to good use, Mr Onslow has been the sole architect of The RU Group’s “Culture of Learning” transforming the level of knowledge within the business.

This has seen more than 30 exam passes from 22 different members of staff and led to Russell Ulyatt receiving Chartered status in 2016. The Group has this year recorded its highest profit and turnover figures to date.

He has also taken on the recruitment and mentoring of new advisers and is featured regularly in the media, answering reader’s questions in The Telegraph’s money makeover section and appearing on Notts TV, offering advice on how to save for Christmas and deal with the financial pressures afterwards.

He was also awarded the prestigious Chartered Insurance Institute High Achiever for Nottingham in 2017.

“Working hard and developing the skills of individuals to create effective teams is central to how the military operates and I am pleased to be able to draw on my experience to make a positive impact at The RU Group and for our clients,” Mr Onslow said.

“I am delighted to be shortlisted for the award as it is a cause that means a lot to me. The transferrable skills you learn in the military can be hugely valuable to companies and I encourage all employers to consider hiring former military personnel when recruiting.”
