Business and financial advisers Grant Thornton has been appointed to the Camelot winners' advisory panel.
This appointment will involve Grant Thornton's investment and financial planning experts advising Lottery winners on how best to deal with their new-found wealth.
Dot Renshaw, head of player services at Camelot, says: “We are delighted that Grant Thornton has joined the panel. We were very keen to ensure that our winners do not have to travel far from home to deal with their advisers and Grant Thornton's presence across the country, along with its personal approach to financial advice, is a big advantage.”
Ian Johnson, head of private client services at Grant Thornton, says: “This appointment represents a fantastic new challenge for our experts across the UK. We work hard at building strong relationships with our clients and this will be even more important when dealing with people who suddenly find themselves very well off. The National Lottery has created over 1,400 millionaires since its launch eight years ago. We are looking forward to a busy start to the year.”
