The Top 10 Debt Counsellors Have Been Announced

The annual peer review for the Debt Review Awards process ended on the 31st of August this year. Now the Top 10 Debt Counsellors in each size category have been announced.

With the Annual Debt Review Awards show now only a few days away the organisers have released information about the Top 10 Debt Counsellors in each size category.

While the highest rated Debt Counsellor in each category has not yet been identified we are now able to see which practices are firmly in the running for the top spots this year. The top 10 announcement is something like a “shortlist” of those Debt Counsellors who could take the Golden Piggy Bank awards this year.

Top 5

On September 10th, 2021 the different Debt Counsellor practices that fall into the Top 5 slots in each size category will be announced during the LIVE stream on YouTube.

Also announced at the Awards show will be those 5  debt counselling practices (in the different sizes) that received the highest cumulative ratings during the Peer Reviews this year. The highest rated Debt Counsellors will receive Golden Piggy Bank awards (shipped this year rather than handed out at an in-person event, since the event will be held online).

Debt Counsellors are divided into the following size categories during the peer review process: Boutique, Small, Medium, Large and National.

In the two largest size categories the credit providers who participate in the peer reviews are asked to consider all the different Debt Counsellors who work together and one practice or under one brand.
