The candidates for the Association of Financial Advisers (AFA) Adviser of the Year (AOTY) awards have been named, with the lion’s share of nominees coming from New South Wales, Queensland and Victoria.
The winner will be announced at the AFA national conference in October, with AFA chief executive Brad Fox recently telling ifa that the awards are an important opportunity to help mend the public image of the industry.
“Despite all the pressure our industry has been under over the past five years from the GFC to FOFA and all related issues, there are still advisers out there doing a great job,” Mr Fox said.
“The AOTY is all about shining a light on those that are our best players, and that helps to raise the bar across the industry and other advisers can aspire to be like them,” he added.
