“I believe that the PlanPlus Global Financial Planning Awards are crucially important to help demonstrate and reinforce the value that professional advisers can deliver to their clients and the wider community.   As the Financial Planning industry continues to cultivate into a globally recognised profession, promoting the value of advice will help to break down misconceptions and strengthen public trust in the profession.  

I encourage all Financial Planners that provide high quality, professional advice to their clients to enter the PlanPlus Global Financial Planning Awards next year to demonstrate the value that can be achieved from obtaining Professional Financial Advice and enhance the reputation of our profession”.
