For me this was a great honour, as I have always been committed to improving our industry and it was nice to be acknowledged for that. What struck me most, as I delivered the speech and handed out the prizes, was that I am not on my own. There are now a variety of highly competent, committed and qualified advisers, who all have the clients’ best interests at heart and are working hard to create a strong financial future for them.

I still come across those clients who have received poor advice from previous advisers, but it is my hope and aim that this becomes a thing of the past. I believe that we are closer to this happening than ever before. What great news!
