Alexander Calder Financial Ltd
Alexander Calder Financial Limited was formed in 2001 following the closure of the UK operation of an international financial services company. The two founding partners were joined over the following months by 3 further advisers who had all worked together since, in some cases, the 1980's.
We are based in Worksop and offer financial planning services to private and corporate clients across a wide spectrum of need areas. The now 7 full-time advisers are supported by 6 administration staff ensuring that client service is always at the forefront of what we do. Our approach is to understand the needs of the client, what plans they already have in place and what action needs to be taken to achieve financial goals. We are very focused on long-term client relationships as we build a plan and review regularly to ensure that the objective of the client is met . We are generally 'there' at most major life events to ensure financial stability is achieved.
Our services include pensions for the individual and employers (meeting workplace pension obligations), investments utilising the tax beneficial products available, and protection products to ensure finances are stable when life throws a curveball. We work with some of the most highly respected and well known investment managers in the UK and can offer very bespoke investment management for those who need that little bit more involvement to achieve their goals.
In addition, our associated business The Mortgage Shop, based on Bridge Street in Worksop, offers mortgage advice to both our clients and the general public.
We are pleased to once again support NNBA as the region continues to evolve and grow and look forward to presenting the Company of the Year with their award.
Edgewise Edgestrip Ltd
We supply our own Edgewise™ branded products; Edgestrip Profiles, Spreader Bars, Tape, Bagseals and Cornerwise which are used in the electrolytic refining of metals where our largest sector is copper refineries.
Our customers are based throughout the world and we supply our products to Australia, Canada, Chile, China, Democratic Republic of Congo, Finland, India, Japan, Laos PDR, Mexico, Romania, Russian Federation, South Africa, USA and the UK.
Most of the Edgewise products are used to protect the edges of the cathode plates used during the electroplating of copper (and other metals) to form pure sheets or mother blanks, from which every type of copper product can then be produced.
The Bagseal product is used within specialised polishing filters to seal the filter bags onto the filter elements for filtration of the electrolytic liquor.
We provide each customer with a customised product to match their exact specifications, manufactured to very high tolerances and precision. We exclusively machine our polypropylene Edgestrip Profiles from press formed sheets rather than using the more conventional extrusion method of our competitors. This makes our products not only unique but technically superior making them the best of their type worldwide.
Edgewise Edgestrip Ltd were also finalists for the International Development Award in the Midlands Region's very prestigious Family Business Awards 2015.

The Mortgage Shop
The Mortgage Shop in Worksop has been established for many years working within David Hawke Property Services. Since 2009 it has been associated with Alexander Calder Financial Limited and in 2016 we brought the business into its own high street premises to make it independent of, but still working closely with, its historic connections.
The Mortgage Shop does exactly what it says on the tin - it is not about 'selling' you other things like current or savings accounts - it does not sell houses, or even rent them out. At TMS our only focus is on working with our clients to obtain the most suitable and best mortgage deal we can find from the whole of the mortgage market. Neil Mills heads the advice side of things and has worked in mortgages for many years. Our clients return time after time to re-mortgage, move home, perhaps purchase a buy-to-let, or to just understand their options when considering a move.
TMS is proud to support the NN Business Awards and wishes all entrants, whatever their category, the best of luck and ongoing success.

The brand is synonymous with gems of exceptional quality, cut to perfection and set in unique designs. Every piece of David Fowkes Jewellery has been individually created, using ancient stone cutting methods, and a combination of both traditional and innovative techniques. David’s work translates as a piece of art and a feast for the eyes: the ultimate pleasure to wear.
Every unique piece of jewellery is made by hand, on site, by his own Goldsmiths, resulting in incredibly high standards of quality and craftsmanship.

Trailblazer Tracking Ltd
In partnership with an award-winning IT development business, Trailblazer was created by financial advisers for financial advisers.
The team behind Trailblazer includes Nigel Ruff, Marcus Horne, Peter Greaves, Gregg Bartram, and Martin Hibbert, and has well over 25 years’ financial services experience. Additional experience gained within the NHS on compliance with regulatory requirements and auditable data reporting have further helped Trailblazer’s development.
As practicing advisers, we understand the compliance challenges you face. We have travelled the same challenging regulatory journey as you. We believe that regulatory change will be with us for the foreseeable future, at the forefront of which is MiFID II and the burden it places on advisers and their business.
Furthermore, being able to demonstrate delivery of the service your clients pay for will become increasingly relevant.
We are proud to have develop an app which will help users comply with the regulatory burden placed on them by MiFID II, while demonstrating ongoing service and helping to track CPD. Furthermore, we also believe Trailblazer will ultimately increase the value of the businesses which adopt it.
