Our company

Our company

Tenet’s origins

Tenet’s history goes back to the 1980s, but it was in 1992 when the business really started to take shape when the M&E Network was launched.

Designed with the needs of financial advisers in mind, M&E Network brought advisers to a single place for the provision of 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, we acquired Interdependence Ltd (a company with a similar offering to M&E) and launched the Tenet Group.

Business growth

Since then, Tenet has continued to grow, acquire other businesses and develop more services - all designed to provide support and backing to our advisers - whatever their status or needs. From compliance and training, to product research and business development support - all within the ever-changing and highly-regulated financial services market.

As Tenet grew, we retained our independence, rejecting the chance to float on the stock market, in order that we could continue to focus on providing a first class service to our advisers.

Tenet today

Today, Tenet has the same values, individuality and objectives as we did all those years ago - to provide an unrivalled choice and expertise for our advisers.

So whether your adviser is a member of Tenet Network Services, Tenet Compliance Services or Tenet&You, you can rest assured that you have come to the right place for quality financial advice.

Our values

People are our business, and our values define how we go about things:

  • Customer focus
    We are focussed on providing quality customer service, by ensuring we listen and understand customer needs, and then take ownership.
  • Open & honest
    We are down to earth, honest and straightforward. We say what we mean and do the right thing.
  • Innovate & change
    We find new and better ways to do things every day to benefit our customers.
  • Shared success
    We believe in working effectively together, both across our departments and with our adviser members, and then sharing in the success.
  • Be commercial
    We keep a close eye on costs and challenge our employees with the following question: ‘if it was your business, would you do it?’.
