“PlanPlus’ efforts to promote financial planning worldwide couldn’t be underestimated: the Global Financial Planning Award that they support is the very event you start waiting for as soon as the previous is over. This was the reason why I took part in it again, and I’m sure to participate the next year as well. I strongly recommend every planner to explore this opportunity to prove you are among the best planners in the world.”
